Jayaprana Gravesite


Makam Jayaprana located at Teluk Terima, a short distance down the road. The gravesite of Jayaprana with very beautiful sea view and many local people visiting it. According to Balinese legend, Jayaprana was an orphan who was raised by the ruler of Kalianget village. As an adult he married the lovely Nyoman Layonsari from the neighboring village of Banjar. However, the ruler himself became enamoured of Javaprana’s bride and schemed to kill Jayaprana to have her for himself. He dispatched Jayaprana with an army to contain a band of pirates who he said had arrived in northwestern Bali. On arrival at Teluk Terima the ruler’s minister killed and buried Jayaprana. When the ruler asked Layonsari to marry him, however, she chose to remain faithful to her husband and committed suicide. 

The temple marking jayaprana’s grave is a long and steep climb but the views from about halfway across to Mt Semeru on Java. to Menjangan Island. and to Gilimanuk at the western tip of Bali. make the effort all worthwhile. The temple, which contains a glass case displaying statues of Jayaprana and Layonsari, is pure kitsch.
