The Jagatnatha Temple is the largest Hindu Temple in the capital of Bali, Denpasar, on the east side of the Puputan Badung field. It was classified as the Temple in Kahyangan and became a god’s altar for the Hindus.
If compared with the name of the Kahyangan Temples or other temples surrounding Bali Island, the name of this temple comes from the name of the mountain or village which corresponds to the Temple located in Besakih Temple area, Lempuyang Temple area, Ulundanu Batur Temple area, Andakasa Temple area, Puncak Mangu Temple area and others. Jagatnatha Temple takes a special name that is not derived from various aspects of conception.
The Jagatnatha Temple also opens with the small ceremony on 13 May 1968 amongst the temples in Bali. The unique one of the Temple Jagatnatha is not owned by the Pengempon (the community that runs like other temple). Jagatnatha Temple has only owned a few people since its opening, who arrange the fund for it to be built until everyday ceremony. It is managed with other Hindu people by the Jagatnatha Development Committee.
In addition to the growth after the building of the Jagatnatha Temple, the execution of the ceremony is managed by the Hindu Holy Day Committee (PAHARA HINDU), which is institutionally staffed by the Local Bali Government’s Decree.
PAHARA HINDU personnel are usually taken away from the local government of the city of Badung Regency and Denpasar. Today the government of Denpasar handles the full execution. The temple is frequented by tourists from all over the world since it is open for tourists.
