Overview
More
Trunyanese live peacefully with their own customs and prehistoric tradition. This village is one of the traditional village in Bali called ‘Bali Aga’ or ‘Old Bali’ who live in a tradition and daily life that are vastly different from other Balinese. The Trunyanes do not cremate their dead. After a cleansing ritual, the dead body is placed in a bamboo cage (locally known as ancak saji) under the Taru Menyan tree. Taru Menyan means ‘nice smelling tree’. This tree emanates a typical scent which neutralizes the smell of rotting bodies. It is also this tree from which the name Trunyan is derived. Furthermore, typical for the funeral rites of Trunyan is that only the bodies of married people are allowed to be placed in bamboo cages. In one of the secret shrines, the Trunyanese keep a big statue, of about 4 meters high hidden. The statue is of Ratu Gede Pancering Jagad, the Great King of the centre of the world, which is believed to the patron guardian of that village. To come to this village, visitors should go down from Penelokan and you will pass the village of Kedisan, Buahan, Abang Songan, and Abang Batudinding. You could go by car directly to the village of Truyan. Our local guide has a good experience to explore the authentic village of Trunyan. They are very passionate to share the fascinating culture of indigenous or mountain people in Bali. Plesae feel free to contact us for further information.
