Bali offers a unique cultural traditions. One of the attractions is a village Trunyan. Cemetery in the village of giant old trees which had issued a fragrant odor and a lot of skulls scattered.

Trunyan derived from the word meaning Taru incense tree fragrant. To reach the village Trunyan, need extra struggle. In addition to a fairly remote area, which is rather difficult to find a local willing to take us to the village. Because the field is taken to reach the pier, winding and steep.

Trunyan offers the natural charm of amazingly beautiful. Trunyan cemetery located on the east side of Lake Batur, Bangli Regency, Bali. To reach the location of the grave we have to take a boat about 15 minutes.

The cost of the boat ride is also offered diverse, we must be very clever bid. The price offered is around Rp 150-300 thousand / person. Should give the lowest bid, especially when we are in groups can be more affordable price.

Welcome cool breeze that blows when the ship docked at the pier. After a boat ride of about 15 minutes while enjoying outstanding natural beauty, end up with the words: Welcome to Graves Trunyan.

Hardly any tourists who did not stand her hair while foot in the grave Trunyan complex. Just imagine, the bodies in the graves were left to rot on the ground. Unlike the majority of Balinese ceremonies 'cremation' when someone's death.

Dead bodies or the bodies of the people is only digeletakkan Trunyan granted, and then covered by a 'shelf-food' that is similar to bamboo which formed an equilateral triangle. Made fully dressed corpse, just open the face and part of his back.

Almost all travelers shudder at the sight of a row of skulls in the graveyard Trunyan, Bali. But strangely, not the slightest smell of carrion or putrid odor though no bodies were cremated. Legend and tradition forbids women who visit here should not be in a state of menstruation, as it is considered unclean.

"The legend, there are 4 brothers of Kraton Surakarta Taru hypnotic fragrance of incense,". Taru incense is the origin of the name of the word 'Trunyan', means 'fragrant tree'.

The four brothers were composed of three men and the youngest women. They crossed the land of Java, Sunda Strait and then to look for the origin of the fragrant. Long story short, upon arrival at Trunyan, the elder brother fell in love with the guardian goddess of the tree.

"It has been sanctioned all his brothers, they were married. Trunyan so a small kingdom. Magnitude was issued fragrant tree. Eventually, the king ordered residents to remove the scent to protect them from attack. Nobody else Let hypnotized fragrance,".

Walk towards the 'shelf-food', bamboo-shaped isosceles triangle. This is where the body was laid out just like that, without the slightest smell of carrion. In the vicinity there are relics of the bodies: the plate, framed pictures, handkerchiefs, clothes and jewelry. A little peek into the 'shelf-food', visible pieces of bones and skulls. There is also a live hair alone.

"This is what the King commanded that time. To remove the smell of fragrant, Trunyan the corpse is left alone to rot in the ground here. Foul smell fragrant and is said to have fused here,".

"There are 3 kinds of graves here, this is the first grave Trunyan Trunyan close to the tree., But not just any corpse can be buried in this way, the body must be intact and normal or natural death. Must not have injuries like accidents corpse".

Two other graves, located some distance away from here, two more graves for people who are not natural death such as suicide or accident. Another one is a special cemetery for virgin or an old bachelor but never married. Two graves must not be visited because it is not a holy grave. How they was buried, not laid out like this.

"When dropping bodies, there should not women who join the group. If this rule is violated, might be the village where the woman lived in the affected,".

The number of graves is closed 'shelf-food' just 11. If there are bodies buried here, most roadside corpse shifted his bones. As a result, any row of skulls and bones scattered in the grave.

"This place should not be cleared if it has not done the cleaning ceremony. So the bones and skulls were left alone until the process of the ceremony and should not be touched. Which simply untouchable and the bones of the skull are already ceremonially,".
