Makare-kare

Bali is an island of God because we will find many temples in Bali, that's why also called as island of thousand temples. Difference place, difference culture, that's what happen in Bali because Balinese is formed by many sub ethnic. But mostly Bali have similarity in Hinduism culture, although, there is still a difference in making ritual ceremony in different places or districts.

The old ethnic of Bali is Baliaga, they are the first ethnic in Bali, before the Hindu Majapahit society came to Bali island from Java island as refugees when the war of Islamic kingdom expanding era. They have a unique culture of dance war and fighting, they called Makare-kare.  

Makare-kare is a originally Balinese Culture of Baliaga ethnic at Tenganan Village, Karangasem district. It is are the one of Bali attractive cultures. The attractive culture is war culture from Tenganan Village at Karangasemdistrict that given name Makare-kare. This sacred ritual culture held once a year at fifth month of Balinese calendar (around June or July). This ceremony called "Ngusamba". This war ritual to test the bravely and endurance of men of this village.

The fight uses a Panda-nus leaf plant. Nobody is harmed in this fight as it is just for fun, laughing, and brotherhood. Yes they bleed because of the panda-nus leaf scratch their body, but it is just superficial. They also have their own medication, an ancient medicine in yellow color given name "Boreh". This war ritual is from Hindupre-history of Bali.

So only the ancient ethnic Balinese: "Baliaga" have this ritual ceremony. Begin with two sacred dances: Abwang dance and Rejang dance. when the men starting to fight the women go to the village temple for praying. In this ceremony they using their sacred textiles "Geringsing". This ceremony starting from tenth in the morning to ninth at the evening and closing by Rejang dance at the village temple.

Did You Know?

Did you know? When volcanic eruption of Mount Agung happened in 1960s, the villagers who live nearby the mountain were urged to evacuate from the area. As a result of limited amount of transportation, the women were left behind at home, waiting for disaster to pick up, while all the men were riding on big trucks to be transferred else where safer. This applied because the Balinese believed that men would carry on the pure family liner. I don’t agree with this, women and children’s are hope for future generation. But as I know, most of Balinese men are honest and full of responsibility.  The Picture above is Mount Agung look from Tianyar, Karangasem
