Badut temple is located in Hamlet Gasek, Desa Karang Besuki, Kesamatan Dau, Malang regency of East Java Province. Clown temple is located at the foot of Gunung Kawi. Badut temple is a relic believed to Gajayana King, ruler of the kingdom Kanjuruhan as embodied in the inscription of AD 760 Dinoyo years.

Temple Structure

At the entrance to the temple room decorated Kalamakara.

In terms of temple architecture has similarities with the Badut temples in Central Java to a bad period-to-8 to 10 AD, in particular we can see the resemblance in the Dieng plateau region as Gedong Songo. From the legacy of the foundation remains of three temples perwara (small temples surrounding the temple of Mother), indicate if the temple is a complex Badut enshrinement.

Strong suspicion that the temple is the temple premises Badut Architectural style transition from Central Java to East Java. The possibility also an evidence of the transfer center of the kingdom to the east. In this connection, the scholars tend to connect the story to move east Holing kingdom around the year 740 AD. Then mean that the king of the dynasty sanjaya off to the east because of urgency by Sailendra dynasty. Area in question is probably around Malang now.

The foot

Morphologically, the foot of the temple consists of perbingkaian lower body and legs but legs perbingkaian the BAdut temple has only lower frame legs and body. Frame consists of pelipi below average, while the foot of the temple of the body composition of flat bricks, plain and have no decoration at all. At the front of the temple there are steps up to the booth decorated with carvings of the temple, on the south steps are kinarakinari relief fragment (human-headed creature of Heaven bodied birds play a rebound in charge of the Heavenly music).

Suku Asmat,Papua,indonesia

Asmat people sure that they are descendants of the gods who descended from the unseen world which is across the sea behind the horizon, where the sun sets each day. Asmat people Menururt beliefs, the god's ancestors first landed on Earth in a distant place in the mountains. On his way down to the downstream until he arrived at the place now occupied by the Asmat people downstream, he experienced many adventures.

In the mythology of the Asmat people who live in the Bay Flaminggo example, the god Fumeripitsy name. As he walked from sungau upstream toward the ocean, he was attacked by a giant crocodile. The host mortar boat sank. In the dog fight was going, he can kill the crocodile, but he himself was severely wounded. He carried mendamparkannya current Asewetsy river, the village Syuru now. Fortunately there is a bird that Flamingo care until he recovered, and afterward he built houses and carving yew two beautiful patug and make a drum em, powerful sound. After he finished, he began to dance continuously without stopping, and the power of magic comes out of the movement that gives life to both the carved statue. Soon the statues begin to move and dance, and they later became the first human couple, the ancestors of the Asmat (Zegwaard 1955).

It is very interesting in this myth is the common idea of creating the world in the way of narrating mythological god Shiva created the world and affects all human beings with nature to move and live. Mite is reflected in the statue of the famous Hindu classic called Syiwanataraja.

After that came back a giant crocodile also attacked the two men tried first one, but also can kill Fumeripitsy; crocodile severed head and body cut into pieces small, which threw into all corners of the compass. Crocodile pieces that had to be ancestors of the tribes who lived in homes around the Asmat people and their enemies. Thus this myth describes the first-hunting action and the creation of man by Fumeripitsy Asmat enemy. It also symbolizes the Mite recycling process of life and death (Smith 1970; Schneebaum 1985).

Traditional concept of the Asmat people live based on the belief in an area across the horizon had unraveled. Because they had when the ancestors mengendaki continuation of lineage, they send a certain spirit to the earth through a shaft of sunlight, which landed on the roof of the house where lived a woman who was destined to be a spirit from the boy's mother said. The woman will become pregnant and later gave birth to a baby. Although the Asmat people know that the sex associated with the birth of a baby, its function is only to give shape to the human spirit into the mother's womb. In this case the role of the father of the baby with a sculptor who gives shape to the timber provided by nature to him (Zegwaard 1953).

Asmat people sure that the environment in which human lives are also still many of their spirit for the three groups, namely: • yi-ow, or the spirit of its ancestors who are basically good, especially for the offspring. • osbopan, or evil spirits who bring disease and disaster. • plop-ow or evil spirits of dead people silly (Zegwaard 1953).

Souls yi-ow is the guardian of sago forests, lakes and rivers full of fish and forests full of game. Asmat people communicate symbolically with the yi-ow with repeated presentation ceremony which is usually led by ndembero, or ceremony leader. Ozbopan souls are considered to inhabit a particular tree species, caves deep, large stones that have special forms, but also live in the body types of a particular animal. Illness and disasters are usually caused by evil spirits, which also must be satisfied by a man with a variety of ceremonial offerings. Unlike the presentation ceremonies to communicate with the yi-ow, ceremonial offerings to the osbopan not be repeated, but only if someone is sick and when disaster strikes. Souls try to ensure not too often near human habitation, by conducting a series of restrictions, and sometimes with protective magic.

Conception of Asmat people of the same death in many other cultures. They believe that every human being has at least six spirit that animates some of the different parts of the body. Various known disease caused by the Asmat people that animates the soul of a sick body that is away or disappear (Amelsvoort 1964: p. 55-56). That is why how and techniques used by shamans namer ow the disease to heal the sick is to seek to persuade souls or leave it to return to the patient's body earlier. If a few souls who have gone and could not be persuaded to return, the patient in question would die.

Asmat people such conception of death is the departure of one or more of the human soul to never return again. Souls who free themselves from the man's body into the spirit of wandering around human habitation. After some time the spirit will go into the world of spirits behind the horizon, and there eternal life or after a time returned to earth and live again in the body of a baby.

Kidal Temple

Kidal temple is one of the royal temple Singasari heritage. This temple was built as a tribute to great service Anusapati, the second king of Singhasari, who ruled for 20 years (1227 to 1248). Death Anusapati killed by Panji Panji Tohjaya as part of a power struggle Singhasari, also believed to be part of the curse Mpu Gandring. Candi Kidal in architecture, thick with Timuran Javanese culture, have undergone restoration in 1990. Temple lefty Garudeya also includes stories, stories of Hindu mythology, which contains a moral message of liberation from slavery.
Located in the village Rejokidal, Tumpang district, about 20 km east of the city of Malang - East Java, Kidal temple was built in 1248 AD, coincided with the end of the funeral ceremony called Cradha (year 12) to honor the king who had died Anusapati. After the restoration completed in the 1990s, this temple now stand up straight and strong and show its beauty. The road to the Temple Kidal was good after a few years was heavily damaged. Around the temple there are many big trees and shade, the garden of the temple is also well ordered, plus the rural environment adds nuance beautiful atmosphere when visiting there. From the list of guests who book a Left-handedness seems that the temple was not as popular as "friends" of his temple Singosari, Jago, or Jawi. This is presumably because Kidal temple located deep in the countryside, not much history reviewed by experts, and rarely written in the handbook of tourism.
However, Kidal temple actually has some interesting advantages compared to other temples are. Kidal temple made of andesite stone and vertical geometric dimension. Foot of the temple seems a little high up the ladder into small pieces as if no steps into the real. Body temple is smaller than the area of the foot and the roof of the temple, thus giving the impression slim. On foot and body are decorated temple Medallion and a belt around the body adorned temples. The roof of the temple consists of 3 levels of increasingly smaller upwards with the top surface has a large enough roof such unadorned gem (typical of Hindu temples) or stupa (Buddhist temple typical). Each room disisakan level rather large and ornate. It is said that every corner of the roof level of the first disungging with small diamonds. Another notable case is when the carved head above the entrance and the chambers of the temple. Kala, one aspect of Lord Shiva and is generally known as the shrine keeper. Kala headdress appears Kidal Temple creepy with his eyes bulging, mouth open and visible two large fangs and curved to give the impression dominant. The existence of these canines is also a characteristic feature of the temple Timuran Java. In the left corner and right there with your finger mudra (position) threatened. So perfect her duties as guardian of the temple shrine.
All around the temple are the remains of the foundations of a wall that had been dug around the back as a result of the restoration in the 1990s. There is a staircase entrance to the temple complex adjacent to the west through the wall, but hard to tell whether this is so original. If viewed from the perspective of the land around the temple complex terrain, it seems somewhat Kidal temple complex protrudes into approximately 1 meter from the surface today. Is the plain ground of the temple is actually a result of natural disasters such as floods or mountain erupted can not be known with certainty. Traced from the age, Kidal Temple is the oldest temple of heritage temples of East Java after a period of Central Java (5th century - 10 m). This is because the period Mpu Sindok (XM century), Airlangga (XI century AD) and Kediri (XII century AD) had not left the temple, except for Temple Hemisphere (Gempol) and Jolotundo (Dundee) which actually is not a temple but petirtaan. Surely there is an older temple of Candi Kagenengan the book version of Nagarakretagama-dharma place in it, Ken Arok, Anusapati stepfather. But unfortunately this temple until now has never been found.
At the foot of the temple reliefs terpahatkan 3 beautiful pieces depicting the legend Garudeya (Garuda). This story is very popular among the Java community as a moral story about the liberation or old Javanese literature Ruwatan kakawin shaped it, tells of the journey Garuda in freeing his mother from slavery to redemption Amrita holy water. This story is also a temple in East Java on the other in the temple of Sukuh (G. Lawu north slope). Story of Garuda is known to the public at the time of rapidly growing flow of Vaishnava Hinduism (Vishnu), especially in the period Kahuripan and Kediri kingdom. Up-to Airlangga, Kahuripan king, after the death diujudkan as Lord Vishnu in the temple and Jolotundo Hemisphere, and a statue of Garuda Wisnu above is still the most beautiful in the museum tersiumpan Trowulan and probably derived from the temple Hemisphere. Narrative story Garudeya in Kidal temple carved in relief, and 3 respectively located in the middle of the sides of the foot of the temple except the entrance. Reading by way prasawiya (walking counter-clockwise) starting from the south side or right side of the stairs into the temple. The first relief under 3 illustrates Garuda snakes, both painted reliefs of Garuda with a jug above his head, and the third reliefs of Garuda carrying a woman. Among the three reliefs, the second relief is the most beautiful and still intact. It is said that Winata is Kadru and 2 brothers wife Kasiapa receipt. Kadru have 3 adopted children and Winata snakes have adopted Garuda. Kadru bored lazy and tired to take care of foster children are 3 naughty as they often disappear among the bushes. Kadru malice arises to hand this task to Winata. Winata Diajaklah bet on the white horses are often passed Uraiswara their homes and the losers have to winners in all the commandments. With trickery, Kadru finally managed to become a winner. Since then Winata ordered to serve all the needs and care Kadru three children every day snakes. Winata then ask for help Garuda to assist these tasks. (The first relief). When Garuda was growing up, she asked her mother why she and her mother had to keep his adopted 3 brothers while her aunt is not. When told about the betting horses Uraiswara, Garuda understand. One to 3 days ditanyakanlah these snakes so how can she be free from this slavery. Answered by a snake "Get me the holy water Amrita stored in heaven, and guarded by the gods, and came from the ocean of milk". Garuda agreed and immediately asked his mother permission to go to heaven. Of course the gods do not agree that there will fight Garuda. But thanks to the power of the gods Garuda defeated. Seeing this mess Bathara Vishnu Garuda intervene and ultimately be defeated. After hearing stories about the purpose of Garuda obtain Amrita, then allow the Garuda Wisnu Amrita borrow to free his mother and on condition that Garuda will also have to be tungganggannya. Garuda agree. Since that time also became a mount Bathara Garuda Wisnu as apparent on the statues of Vishnu who generally sit on Garuda. Garuda fell back to earth with Amrita. (second relief). Armed with holy water Amrita Garuda is finally able to free his mother from slavery on Kadru. This is illustrated in the third relief where Garuda with his mother carried gallant and free from slavery. (third relief).
Unlike the temples of Central Java, Javanese temple serves as a place Timuran opinion of dharma (the grave) the king, while the temples of Central Java was built to glorify the king professed religion and society. As described in the book that the king Negarakretagama in Wisnuwardhana didharmakan Jago temple, the temple Kertanagara Jawi and Singosari, Hayam Wuruk Ngetos temples, etc.. In the original Javanese philosophy, the temple also functions as a place Ruwatan deceased king to return the sacred and can become a god incarnate again. This idea is closely related to the concept of "god-king" who developed a strong in Java at the time. And to strengthen the principle Ruwatan often reliefs carved moral stories and legends on the foot of the temple, as in temple Jago, Surowono, Tigowangi, Jawi, etc.. In connection with these principles, and in accordance with Negarakretagama book, the temple is a place diruwatnya Kidal Anusapati and glorified the king as Shiva. A beautiful statue of Shiva and is now preserved in the museums of Leiden - Holland allegedly derived from Kidal temple. A question, why Garudeya carved reliefs? What to do with Anusapati?. Most likely before he died, Anusapati told his family that founded the temple later that made him Garudeya relief. He deliberately told that because her mother meruwat aims, Kendedes, whom she loved, but always suffered during his life and has not fully become the main female. In prasati At Malurung, narrated that the daughter Mpu Kendedes Purwa of pedepokan Kepanjen area - beautiful Malang matchless. Ken Dedes beauty so famous that akuwu Tunggul Ametung, forced to use violence in order to make him as his wife Prameswari. After a Tunggul Ametung wife, Ken Dedes was also the cause of death of both her husband Anusapati father was killed by Ken Arok, his stepfather. This happens because of Ken Arok, who accidentally Boboji royal garden Tumapel see out the light shining out from Kendedes aurat. After being told by the priest Lohgawe, that any woman who took out such rays is ardanareswari women, ie women who could produce big kings in Java. In accordance with the ambitions of Ken Arok Tunggul Ametung And he killed and forced to marry with Kendedes. Meanwhile, after marrying Kendedes, Ken Arok was also married Ken Umang and according to the story of Ken Arok said more fond of his second wife of the Ken Dedes; So Ken Dedes ignored. Based on the above, the provision of relief to the temple Garudeya Anusapati Kidal by her mother aims to Ken Dedes meruwat beautiful life but grief. Anusapati very devoted and loving mother. He wanted her to be pure again as a perfect woman out of suffering and grief

Wahai sekalian dewata yang berkuasa, yang sedang berkumpul dan melindungi Kadātuan Śrīwijaya ini; kamu sekalian dewa-dewa yang mengawali permulaan segala sumpah !
Bilamana di pedalaman semua daerah yang berada di bawah Kadātuan ini akan ada orang yang memberon­tak yang bersekongkol dengan para pemberontak, yang berbicara dengan pemberontak, yang mendengarkan kata pemberontak;
yang mengenal pemberontak, yang tidak berperilaku hormat, yang tidak takluk, yang tidak setia pada saya dan pada mereka yang oleh saya diangkat sebagai datu; biar orang-orang yang menjadi pelaku perbuatan-perbuatan tersebut mati kena kutuk biar sebuah ekspedisi untuk melawannya seketika di bawah pimpinan datu atau beberapa datu Śrīwijaya, dan biar mereka
dihukum bersama marga dan keluarganya. Lagipula biar semua perbuatannya yang jahat; seperti meng­ganggu :ketenteraman jiwa orang, membuat orang sakit, membuat orang gila, menggunakan mantra, racun, memakai racun upas dan tuba, ganja,
saramwat, pekasih, memaksakan kehendaknya pada orang lain dan sebagainya, semoga perbuatan-perbuatan itu tidak berhasil dan menghantam mereka yang bersalah melakukan perbuatan jahat itu; biar pula mereka mati kena kutuk. Tambahan pula biar mereka yang menghasut orang
supaya merusak, yang merusak batu yang diletakkan di tempat ini, mati juga kena kutuk; dan dihukum langsung. Biar para pembunuh, pemberontak, mereka yang tak berbakti, yang tak setia pada saya, biar pelaku perbuatan tersebut
mati kena kutuk. Akan tetapi jika orang takluk setia kepada saya dan kepada mereka yang oleh saya diangkat sebagai datu, maka moga-moga usaha mereka diberkahi, juga marga dan keluarganya
dengan keberhasilan, kesentosaan, kesehatan, kebebas­an dari bencana, kelimpahan segala­nya untuk semua negeri mereka ! Tahun Śaka 608, hari pertama paruh terang bulan Waisakha (28 Februari 686 Masehi), pada saat itulah
kutukan ini diucapkan; pemahatannya berlangsung ketika bala tentara Śrīwijaya baru berangkat untuk menyerang bhūmi jāwa yang tidak takluk kepada Śrīwijaya.
