Pelebon of the 9th Raja of Puri Agung Peliatan
The 9th Raja of Puri Agung Peliatan Bali, Ida Dwagung Peliatan, passed away on August 20th, 2010 at the age of 71. The resplendent cremation took place on November 2, 2010, eye-witnessed by thousands of people from around the globe, following dozens of extensive preparations and sacred rites. To Balinese, death is far from grievance. It is, on the contrary, an important process of transporting soul to the holy place in heaven. As a Raja of Peliatan, the king in traditional authority, formed in the 17th century, Ida Dwagung Peliatan has, on his own merits, reached to a level of a Brahma, revered by other existing traditional kingdoms, in Bali and other parts in the country.
