Lingsir Temple Lombok

Pura Lingsar Lombok
It is hard to believe that in this world there are 2 people who have ethnic background, culture and religious belief, can coexist in carrying out their ritual and the difference for them is something reasonable and logical and felt as a wisdom from God Almighty because the difference will make them become acquainted with each other and then respect each other’s beliefs. There is a studio which is carried by both people according to the perception and version of their respective religious beliefs. In certain cases, they can work together and on the other side of things only the people concerned can do. The tradition and belief to be grateful for a fountain in the studio or known as Kemaliq, is believed to be a gift of God Almighty to be a source of life, sparking the spirit to compose a sense of responsibility, selfless responsibility and sacrifice as an expression of gratitude in form of a ceremony. And it is very common to establish the sense of sincerity of the people, the sacrificial aspiration is promoted through the support of the myitological or legendary order In preserving a spring recognized and believed by both people as a sacred and magical area, in accordance with their respective traditions of culture and belief people. Then there is a ceremony of “Topat War” which is sacked by Sasak people whose activities take place in time and place along with the Odalan Ceremony or Pujawali conducted by the Hindus and the two Ummah can with Hajrah conduct their ceremony respectively. This Pura / Kemaliq Lingsar name began to emerge when the Balinese first came to Lombok. The group of Balinese came from Karangasem which amounted to ± 80 people. Their arrival landed on the West coast near Mount Pengsong, West Lombok. From Mount Pengsong the King’s entourage continued their journey to Perampuan, then to Pagutan then to Pagesangan. The entourage was led by three people, namely: From Pagesangan, the troupe walk but have not found a sign. Arriving in the Punikan entourage, the entire group was thirsty and hungry so rested for a drink. After eating suddenly there was a sound like an eruption and rumble. Then they look for the origin of the sound that turned out to be a new spring erupted, then there is a revelation saying that already mastered Lombok makabuatlah Pura here. Then the water flood was named Ai ‘Nausea which means water flowing. Next the name Ai “Nausea turns into Lingsar. Lingsar comes from the word Ling, which means revelation or word and Sar, which means valid or clear. So Lingsar means clear revelation. While the source of its springs is located not far from the area, and is named Ai ‘Mual (Air Timbul) which is located on the east of Lingsar. Pura / Kemaliq Lingsar allegedly the construction was done in 1759, the year of the end of Mataram power which at that time was centered in Cakranegara. The construction of Pura Lingsar by Raja Ketut Karangasem Singosari is intended to unite inwardly the Sasak Society with the Balinese Society. Pura Lingsar is built side by side with Kemaliq Lingsar which is the place of Sasak people worship. Much earlier in this location the Sasak Society have been worshiping the source of the spring they call Kemaliq. Kemaliq comes from the word maliq in Sasak which means sacred or holy. Source of springs that exist in this Kemaliq by the Sasak Society is sacred or sanctified because the place they believe to be the place of disappearance (moksa) a broadcaster of Islam Wetu Telu named Raden Mas Sumilir from Medayin Kingdom. The existence of Wetu Telu Islamic teachings in the Lingsar region originates from Java through Bayan, on the instruction of Sunan Pengging from Central Java at the beginning of the sixteenth century. Islam This telu time is a Hindu-Muslim syncretism. The source of his teachings comes from the teachings of Sunan Kalijaga. This syncretism in mystical beliefs is a combination of Hinduism (Adwaita) with Islam (Sufism), with the teachings of pantheism. So animism is still valid and mystical in terms of religion can be accepted voluntarily by all Lombok residents who still understand animism. This teaching is then called Wetu Telu. According to Hindu teachings, people of other faiths should not be forced to accept the teachings of Hinduism. But what the Balinese are forced to do is teach that everyone should thank God with their religion, beliefs and ways. With this belief, the development of Anak Agung Anglurah Gede Karang Asem in 1759 in Lingsar is intended for two types of community groups, namely: The part of the building for the Hindu community is called Gaduh, which means Pura. The section of the building for the Wetu Telu community is called Kemaliq, which a
it is sacred. Gaduh and Kemaliq can be worn at any time according to the needs of their respective religions, but only once a year should be held a joint ceremony, the Topat War. War Topat is a ceremonial activity in the form of war-perangan and topat or ketupat as a weapon that is used by mutual throwing with fellow friend.Pat Topat held before planting rice but after the arrival of the rainy season. The purpose of this event is to return the land yield (topat) to the origin (Lingsar). The result will be a foam (bubble vacant) for the seeds of rice to be planted. The main ones attending the ceremony were Subak members of Kecamatan Lingsar and Narmada. The Topat War is an expression of joy or gratitude to the Creator. Every year before Topat War, there are some people from this Subak who climb to Mount Rinjani with objects made of shrimp-shaped gold, gurami, nyale, and turtles. These objects will later be discharged to Lake Segara Anak with a view to pleading prosperity.
