Barong (mythology)

Barong is a character in the mythology of Bali. He is the king of the spirits, leader of the hosts of good, and enemy of Rangda in the mythological traditions of Bali. Banas Pati Rajah is the fourth "brother" or spirit child that accompanies a child throughout life. Banas Pati Rajah is the spirit which animates Barong. A protector spirit, he is often represented by a lion, and traditional performances of his struggles against Rangda are popular parts of Balinese culture. The Barong is often portraited with two monkeys.

The animal/ mythical creature would dance along the street to the calonarang dance. A priest would throw Holy Water at it. It is known as the Demon Queen and Mother of All Spirit Guarders.

The lion barong is one of five traditional Barong. In Bali each region of the island has its own protective spirit for its forests and lands. Each Barong for each region is modeled after a different animal. There is a boar, a tiger, a dragon (or serpent) and the traditional lion. The lion is the popular one as it comes from the Gianyar region where Ubud (the home of tourist viewed ritual) is located. Within the calonarang, the dance drama in which the Barong appears, the barong responds to Rangda's use of magic to control and kill her to restore balance.


Barong in fiction
* Digimon has a character named Baromon (AKA Baronmon) who is named after him.
* Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne has Barong as a recruitable enemy. Having a "speaking" Barong in your party speak with a wild Rangda may lead to a "Special Conversation" that relates heavily to how the two relate to each other in the mythology, as well as grant an item to the player. Like many other Shin Megami Tensei games, fusing Barong with Rangda will create Shiva.
* Persona 3 also has Barong as a Persona.
* "Jūken Sentai Gekiranger" has a character named Master Bat Lee who wears Barong attire and teaches Retsu/GekiBlue Bat-Fist Style.
* In Azure Dreams for the Gameboy Color, a Barong is a rare monster. If the player throws an item at a Barong, it will spit out a different item.

The Food of Bali

Satay
SATE LILIT
(Minced Seafood Satay)
OVERVIEW:
This probably the most delicious satay you will ever encounter. The delicate flavors of the shrimp and fish are greatly improved if you can find spears of fresh lemongrass to use as skewers, and if you can cook them over a fire of coconut husks rather than charcoal. Nonetheless, even with wooden skewers and a standard charcoal grill, you will have people coming back more.

INGREDIENTS:
600 gr skinned boneless snapper fillet
1 cup freshly grated coconut or
1½ cups moistened desiccated coconut
½ cup seafood spice paste
5 fragrant lime leaves, chopped
1 tsp black peppercorns, finely crushed
1 tsp salt
3-5 bird's eye chilies, very finely chopped
2 tbsp palm sugar
Lemon grass or satay skewers

PREPARATION:
1. Mince fish fillet very finely in a food processor or with a chopper.
2. Add all other ingredients & mix well.
3. Mould a heaped tablespoon full of this mixture around a wooden skewer or over trimmed stalks of lemon grass and grill over charcoal until golden brown.

Note: This recipe won't work with frozen fish.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SATE SAMPI & SATE UDANG
(Beef Satay & Shrimp Satay)
OVERVIEW:
Balinese satays are always a little charred on the outside, which give them a particularly delicious flavor. Once the meat is marinated, it can be kept fresh for at least 4 days in a refrigerator.

INGREDIENTS:
600 gr beef topside, cut in 1 cm cubes
3 – 5 bird's-eye chilies, chopped
2 tbsp brown sugar
½ cup beef spice paste
¼ tbsp salt
Satay skewers

PREPARATION:
Combine meat, chilies, brown sugar and spice paste and mix well. Cover and marinate for 24 hours in refrigerator. Spear four pieces of meat very tightly on a satay skewer. Place beef satays on charcoal cooker and grill over very high heat either on coconut husks or on charcoal. Serve with Satay Sauce. Note: To make satay with lamb, pork or dusk, follow the directions above but use basic spice paste. If using chicken, replace with chicken spice paste. Balinese satays are always a little burned which gives them a very particularly delicious flavor.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SEAFOOD
1. Be Pasih Mepanggang
(Marinated Grilled Fish)
OVERVIEW:
The fragrance of seasoned fresh fish sizzling over charcoal is almost irresistible.

INGREDIENTS:
1 kg (2 lb) whole snapper, cleaned
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper crushed
1 cup seafood spice paste
Oil to brush fish

PREPARATION:
With a sharp knife cut four slits about 2 cm (3/4 in) deep on both sides of the fish. This allows the seasoning to penetrate better and the fish to cook more evenly. Season outside with lime juice salt and pepper. Fill the inside of the fish with seafood spice paste. If possible, leave the fish to marinate for several hours to improve the flavor.

Brush outside of fish with a little seafood spice paste and oil, place on charcoal grill and cook over medium heat. Turne fish frequently and continue to brush with seafood spice paste and oil.

Serve with Sambal Tomat, Sambal Matah and white rice.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TAMBUSAN BE PASIH
(Diced Fish Roasted in Banana Leaf)
OVERVIEW:
The spicy fish dish is excellent for barbeques.

INGREDIENTS:
600 gr (1¼ 1lb) boned mackerel fillets, skin removed and cut in 2.5 cm (1in) cubes
½ cup basic marinade
1 heaped tbsp tamarind pulp, soaked in
¼ cup warm water and juice extracted
1 tsp black peppercorns, crushed
1 ½ tsp salt
3 lemon leaves, cut in hair like shreds
3 tbsp oil
2 salam leaves
2 square of banana leaf 30x30cm
(10x10 in)

PREPARATION:
In deep bowl combine mackerel cubes, spice paste, tamarind juice, crushed black pepper, salt, lime leaf and oil, and mix very well in order to coat fish evenly. Cover and marinate in cool place for 2 hours. Place one salam leaf in center of each piece of banana leaf. Top with half of seafood mix and fold the same way as for Tum Bebek. Place parcels directly onto moderately hot charcoal and roast very slowly for one hour. Alternatively, bake on rack in a moderate oven or under a grill for about 30 minutes. Serve with Sambal Matah, Sambel Tomat, wedges of lime and steamed rice.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UDANG PANTUNG KUNING
(Lobster in Yellow Sauce)
OVERVIEW:
A real gourmet treat from Bali, this could also be made with huge prawns. In Bali, coconut chunks are roasted directly on charcoal, then the charred skin scrapped off and the flesh grated for making the coconut milk.

INGREDIENTS:
4 sml lobsters, weighing about 500 gr each or 1 kg large prawns
5 cups water
2 lemongrass, bruised

2 tbsp oil
1 ½ tbsp tamarind pulp
1 salam leaf
1 lemon grass, bruised

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BEBEK BETUTU
(Roast Duck In Banana Leaf)
OVERVIEW:
The rich flavor of duck is greatly enhanced by a host of pungent roots, herbs and seasonings in this dish, which is invariably a great favorite with visitors to Bali. The Balinese have great admiration for the duck and consider it to be a particularly strong animal as it is, like the turtle, the only one able to survive on land as water.

INGREDIENTS:
1 whole duck, weigh about 2 kg (4 ½ lb)
18 shallots, peeled, cut in half, and sliced
6 cloves garlic, peeled, cut in half, & sliced
3 stalks lemon grass, finely sliced
5 fragrant lime leaves, finely sliced
6 candlenuts, chopped
5 cm (2 in), ginger, peeled and chopped
8 cm (3in) fresh turmeric, peeled, chopped
8 cm (3in) kencur root, peeled, chopped
1 tsp black peppercorns, crushed
5 bird's-eye chilies, slices
1 tsp coriander seeds, crushed
2 tsp dried shrimp paste, roasted and coarsely crushed
1½ tbsp salt
3 tbsp oil
Banana leaves, greaseproof paper or aluminum foil for wrapping

PREPARATION:
Wipe the duck dry and set aside. Combine all ingredients except banana leafs in a bowl and mix well. Rub the duck outside with this mixture and fill the center of the duck with the remainder.

Close open duck with satay skewer. Wrap in several layers of banana leaves, greaseproof paper or foil and steam for 50 minutes. Transfer duck to a moderate oven and bake at 180o C (350o F) for 30 minutes.

Remove banana leaves, cut duck meat up in small pieces and serve with stuffing. When cooked, the meat should be so tender that it falls off the bones.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TUM BEBEK
(Minced Duck In Banana Leaf)
OVERVIEW:
Tum, leaf-wrapped bundles of highly seasoned food, are made with almost any basic ingredient in Bali, ranging from eels, to chicken, pork, beef or duck.

INGREDIENTS :
600 gr boneless duck, skin removed and minced
1 tbsp fried shallots
1 tbsp fried garlic
1/3 cup coconut milk, thick
3 tbsp basic spice paste
4 bird’s-eye chilies, sliced
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp black peppercorns, crushed
12 pieces banana leaf, cut in 20 cm (8 in) squares
12 ea salam leaves

PREPARATION:
Combine the above ingredients except for banana leaf and mix well. Fold a heaped tablespoon of the mixture into the center of a banana leaf and wrap. Steam parcels for about 15 minutes, until well cooked. If banana leaf, use greaseproof paper in preference to aluminum foil.

The above mixture can also be used for duck satays; simply add 200g of grated coconut and double the quantity of the basic spice paste salt and pepper. Spear 2 heaped tablespoons of the paste around a large satay skewer or stalk of lemon grass.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BEBEK MENYANYAT
(Duck Curry)
OVERVIEW:
Ducks waddling along the banks of the rice fields or following the flag held by their owner (or his children) are a common sight in Bali. On festive occasions, duck is great favorite. Spiced stuffed duck baked in banana leaf is one popular recipe; this curry-like dish is another. Chicken could be used as a substitute for duck if preferred.

INGREDIENTS:
1 whole duck, weighing about 2 kg
8 cups coconut milk
2 lemon grass, bruised
2 salam leaves
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp black peppercorns, crushed
fried shallots

SPICE PASTE:
12 shallots, peeled and sliced
6 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
4 red chilies
2.5 cm galangal (laos), peeled and sliced
2.5 cm kencur, peeled and sliced
5 cm fresh turmeric, peeled and sliced
2 tsp coriander, crushed
3 candlenuts
1 tsp dried shrimp paste
¼ tsp black peppercorns, crushed
pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
2 cloves
3 tbsp oil

PREPARATION:
Cut the duck into 12 pieces and pat dry.
Prepare the spice paste by grinding or blending all ingredients except oil. Heat the oil and sauté the spice paste for 2 minutes. Add the duck, increase heat and sauté for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the coconut milk and all ingredients except fried shallots and simmer, uncovered, until the duck is tender and the sauce has thickened.

Bali Temple & palaces

Bali is also known as "the island of the thousand temples". This is an understatement. There are probably over a million temples on the island. In fact, Bali has more temples than houses.
Bali also has a large number of palaces of stunning beauty, a legacy of the eight ancient kingdoms that once ruled the island.

Temples - the meeting point of humans and gods.
Temples are the meeting points of humans and gods and are resting-place for the gods during their stay on the island. Temples come to life only on certain festival days or at temple anniversaries (odalan), when they are elaborately decorated to greet the gods with offerings. There are temples for almost all aspects of Balinese life. There are house temples, village temples, family temples, banjar temples, subak temples, cave temples, temples for ancestors, rice fields, and even for monkeys. For the entire island, Pura Besakih, also known as "the mother temple", is the most important of all temples.

Besakih : Location: Besakih

Pura Besakih, "the mother temple", is the greatest of all Balinese sanctuaries. The temple complex consists of 22 separate structures and is perched high on the slopes of Mount Agung. The temples were built between the 14th and 17th centuries, although in recent years new structures have been added. Prominently featured are the three seats in the lotus throne, in which shrines are dedicated to Brahma, Siwa and Wisnu.

Pura Luhur Batu Karu : Location: 10 km west of Bedugul

This is one of the six axial temples sacred to all Hindu Balinese and one of the most ancient sacred sites on the island. The inner courtyard is small and neat, with three merus (shrines) in honor of the deified kings of Tabanan. The lake below, to the east of the main temple, has a shrine in the center in honor of the goddess of Lake Tamblingan and the god of Mount Batu Karu.

Pura Kehen :

Pura Kehen is Bali's second largest temple. The temple has three courtyards, connected by steps, and decorated with carvings and statues. A large banyan tree shades the lowest and second courtyard.
Location: Bangli

Pura Taman Ayun :

Located in Mengwi, the temple consists of a forecourt, a central court and a spacious inner court. After a tall stone gateway, the inner court has rows of shines and carved stone pedestals. Along the basement of the pavilions are relief series an Arjuna.
Location: Mengwi

Gunungkawi :

In the center of this little town, a clearly signposted side street leads to the brink of the Pakerisan gorge at Gunung Kawi, where a daunting flight of steps leads down to the river itself. This is Bali's 'valley of the kings', fow hewn in the cliffs on both sides of the river appear massive commerorative monuments to 11th-century kings and queens. Although, strictly speaking, Gunungkawi is not a temple, it is considered a holy place. A visit to the valley is an unforgettable experience that you should not miss!
Location: Tampaksiring

Pura Ulun Danu Batur :

This is an imposing complex of nine temples, still undergoing renovation. It is dedicated to the goddess of the lake. The temple is worth visiting, if only for its beautiful surroundings.
Location: 5 km south of Kintamani

Pura Luhur Uluwatu :

The Pura Luru Uluwatu is located on the tip of the Badung peninsula, with a breathtaking view of the sea. The carvings which decorated the temple are very well preserved. It was built in the 11th century.
Location: Uluwatu

Pura Pakendungan

Sunset is the best time to visit this isolated temple on the west coast. Its distinctive silhouette is a photographer's dream and nightly they crowd the coastline awaiting the spectacle. Perhaps the answer is to arrive in the daytime to see the temple avoiding the crowds and to leave long after sunset. As in Besakih, and in Goa Lawah, commerce has spoilt much of this otherwise beautiful spot.
Location: Tanah Lot

Pura Tirta Empul :

This temple is a major pilgrimage point. The most striking feature of Tirta Empul is the bathing pools, which are considered sacred. According to legend, the army of the god Indra was revived here before defeating the evil king Maya Danawa.
Location: Tampaksiring

Pura Ulun Danu Bratan :

This highland destination is located just outside the small town of Bedugul. A beautiful temple is sited on the shores of Lake Bedugul and casts a neat reflection is its still waters. The temple takes on an ephemeral quality at dawn.
Location: Bedugul

Sangeh Monkey Sanctuary :

Said to have been built in the 17th century, there is a statue here of Garuda. The temple is surrounded by tall nutmeg trees. Many monkeys roam the surrounding forest (watch you purse and eyeglasses !).
Location: Sangeh

Denpasar Bali

Denpasar means ‘by the market’ and is Bali’s only real city. Denpasar is home to Balinese people from all over the island who work in Kuta, so in the late afternoon the roads leading to Denpasar are choked with traffic. For a Javanese person Denpasar is home from home.I’ve been told that there is a real community feeling there and people look after each other. Around 500,000 people live in Denpasar, including Balinese, Javanese and others from around the country. Denpasar is ‘local friendly’ in that rent, food and almost anything else is cheap and you will find food vendors from many parts of Indonesia. Denpasar is not particularly ‘tourist friendly’, traffic system and the lack of obvious tourist facilities mean its is often overlooked by visitors.

Balinese history has been largely influenced by outsiders. One group of outsiders, who have a history of violence and destruction, wherever they went were the Europeans. One of the bloodiest events in Balinese history occurred in Denpasar on September 20th, 1906, when the raja of Badung (the southern regency in Bali), Gusti Gede Ngurah came to the conclusion, that his court could no longer suffer under Dutch rule and ordered a mass suicide, the ritual puputan

• How to get to Denpasar:
There are a couple of ways to get to Denpasar from people staying in Kuta. If you are going to Renon to visit a consulate, you would take the Bypass to Sanur, and turn off at Jl. Raya Puputan. If you want to a selection of Denpasar’s food, you would follow Jl. Imam Bonjol through to Jl. Tueku Umar. From Seminyak you might follow Jl. Raya Kerobokan around to Jl. Gatut Subroto, the busy street that crosses Denpasar in the north. Many other routes are also possible. Once inside Denpasar proper, you will have to be on your toes as the one-way traffic system can send you in directions not anticipated. Denpasar is quite large so take a map with you.
• Accommodation:

• Eating Out:
Denpasar occupies a large geographic area with many small local warung. The most famous area is Jl. Tueku Umar, which is lined with restaurants and warungs serving varieties of food from all over Indonesia.
Ramayana Shopping Mall has a large food court on the top floor serving fast food versions of Indonesian favourites.

• Walking Tour of Denpasar:
Denpasar offers a different type of scene to that found in the Kuta area. Not a tourist center, or even a party center, Denpasar is home to locals, Balinese from other parts of the island, who work in Kuta, and other Indonesians who have moved here. It offers cheap accommodation, street food, cheap locally made goods and a nightmare traffic system. There are some highlights and my LP guide book points out a route that can be done on foot.

• Denpasar bemo stops:
Tourists visiting are on a short time frame and use a variety of transport modes to get them around as quickly as possible including taxis, rented cars and motorbikes. One transport option most people don’t think of are bemos. Bemos are are the small mini vans that drive all over Bali ferrying locals from place to place at an affordable price.Denpasar has some big bemo terminals and understanding where the buses route to and from is important.

• Nightmarkets:
Denpasar has some great local markets, some which are open at night. Pasar Badung is open at night in part, and other markets which are known as ‘night markets’ are Kereneng Night Market, located off of Jl. Hayam Wuruk. Great place for a local night time snack. There is also a night market on Jl. Diponegoro, just north of the Ramayana mall.

• Shopping
Ramayana Shopping Mall is a place most westerners don’t visit. But a trip to Denpasar might take you past this past. If you head north on Jl. Tueku Umar and keep going, taking the compulsory left turn, onto Jl. Diponegoro, you will see the large orange-brick Ramayana Mall on the right hand side.

• Events:
Bali Arts Festival - Taman Budaya Cultural Center
The Bali Arts Festival is an annual celebration of Balinese art and cultural traditions. The event last a month from mid-June- mid-July. Check your local Bali events calendar for the schedule. Performance events are in the morning and late afternoon / evenings, so if you go in the middle of the day there may not be dances on.

• Culture:
Wayang Kulit: Balinese shadow puppets at Bali Museum
Geringsing: Balinese weaving at the Bali Museum
The Bali Arts Festival is presented at the Taman Budaya Cultural Center, located on Jl. Nusa Indah in the same area as the Kereneng bemo station.

• Banking:
Citibank
Citibank has one branch in Bali, located on Jl. Tueku Umar. This modern bank is based in the US and can handle large sums of money. Here is a selection of their charges.

• Bali Museum Denpasar

• What is it?

A museum detailing the history of Balinese culture from megalithic times to the present.

• Admission:
3,000rp for adults, 1,000rp for kids, plus 1,000rp insurance for adults, 500rp.

• Getting there from Kuta:
Your best bet is to take a taxi, as Denpasar is hard to navigate. If you want to drive / ride yourself, take Jl. Imam Bonjol towards Denpasar, take Jl. Teuku Umar , going straight through the roundabout. When the road forks after a kilometer or so, go right and follow signs for Bali Museum. When you come to Puputan Square, the big grassy area to your right, circle around it and park in front of the large Balinese temple. The museum entrance is next door. Travelling time from Kuta is 20 minutes.

• When is it open?
Bali Museum is open from 8am-3pm Mon-Thurs & Sun, 8am-12.30pm Fri, Sat closed.

• How long does it take to tour the museum?
You can do it in an hour, but if you want to check out all the exhibits and read all the descriptions, it will take 2 hours.

• Facilities:
Toilet, drinks shop, gift shop.

• Do you need a guide?
There are individuals hanging around offering their services as a guide. You’ll have to negotiate for a price. In my opinion, as long as you can read, you’ll be fine.

• Best time to go?
Mornings and early afternoons, as the staff have been known to close early, then try to charge you a fee for the ’special service’ of opening the museum just for you.

• Tips for visitors:
Eat something before you go, as there is no restaurant on site, or any food places in the area.
