Pura Agung Jagatnatha is the largest temple in the city of Denpasar. It is located on Mayor Wisnu Road and is very strategic, which is to the east of Puputan Badung Field and adjacent to the Bali Museum. Like most temples in Bali, the position of the building faces west of Mount Agung. Hindus in Bali believe that on a mountain top there is a palace for the Gods.
The construction of Pura Agung Jagatnatha is not necessarily built, but through several processes. Starting from the number of Hindu immigrants who came to Denpasar City and could not find a place of worship. Then held a Dharma Parisada plot on November 20, 1961.
When the incident broke out September 30, 1965, the process of building the temple was hampered. On July 28, 1967, Padmasana Bedawang Nala's foundation could be completed. Furthermore, on October 15, 1967, the development of Padmasana has reached the middle or middle.
On December 13, 1967, the entire Padmasana building could be completed. On February 5, 1968, the construction of the Bentar Temple was completed. And, on May 13, 1968, precisely at Purnama Jiyestha (a holy day for Hindus, celebrated for blessings and gifts from Hyang Widhi), the temple was inaugurated.
Pura Agung Jagatnatha has a special or unique feature, namely the absence of Pengempon (a group of people who manage this temple). Pura Agung Jagatnatha only has a few people who manage funds ranging from construction to daily ceremonies.
Pura Agung Jagatnatha has Pelinggih, a holy place in Hyang, Padmasana pelinggih which rises to around 15 meters. At the top of Padmasana, there is a picture of Acintya, a symbol or embodiment of the omnipotence of God, which was once covered with gold. But unfortunately, the gold was taken by thieves around 1981.
