Puri Kangin Karangasem

Puri Agung Karangasem was built at the end of the 19th century by Anak Agung Agung Gede Jelantik, King of Karangasem and the first Stedeholder in Bali for the Dutch Regime. It was later renovated by his son, the King Anak Agung Agung Anglurah Ketut Karangasem, the second stedeholder in Bali. The Palace has three major parts. Visitors are received in the first compound, called the ‘Bencingah’, which has rooms reserved for specially invited guests to your right and left. Visitors enter through gates made in the stupa or pagoda-style. Noted for its tripartite structure, the gate houses the spirits that guard and protect both host and guest from any evil wrongdoing.

Through The Eyes of Researcher: Pornographic Demons

Another aspect of the ogoh-ogoh debate having implications for the use of custom / culture / religion categories concerns the fact that some makers of these figures include realistic genitalia in their depictions of demons. A massive government campaign was underway during my fieldwork to stamp out pornographic video CDs and other examples of porno. Hindu Council officials were instructing gathered local officials that ogoh-ogoh should not be made with genitals, and furthermore that this was the responsibility of the entire village (desa), not simply the ward (banjar) making the ogoh-ogoh.

Indonesia to plant millions of trees ahead of Bali climate conference
November 29th, 2007

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia, which is losing its forest at a faster rate than any other country, launched a campaign Wednesday to plant 79 million trees ahead of a critical climate change conference opening on the resort island of Bali.”We will show Indonesia’s strong commitment and action to preserve the environment and save our planet,” said President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, as he planted saplings with members of his government. “Illegal logging is our biggest enemy.”

Around 300 soccer fields of trees are destroyed every hour due to illegal logging, mining and slash-and-burn land clearing for highly profitable palm oil plantations - making the country a major contributor to global warming.

Yudhoyono said if the trend continues, future generations will face food and water shortages. Many of the archipelagic nation’s 17,000 islands will likely be submerged by rising sea waters caused by the melting of polar caps, the government says.

Environmental groups have called the planting program well intended, but said it will mean little if the government does not immediately impose a moratorium on deforestation.

World leaders from 80 countries will meet on Bali next month to develop a replacement for the Kyoto Protocol, which expires in 2012.
