Balinese Myth : The Prohibition of Passing Jayaprana’s Grave for Bridal Couple



Balinese Myth: The Prohibition of Passing Jayaprana’s Grave for Bridal Couple 



Almost everyone knows the popular story from William Shakespeare entitled Romeo and Juliet, which was known as true love story with its tragic ending. In Bali, we also have a similar legend about a tragic true love which is also believed to be truly happened some centuries ago. It is a Balinese folklore entitled Jayaprana and Layonsari. 

Teluk Terima, which means ‘The Bay of Acceptance’, is the place where the grave is located and has been visited by many people. The gravesite has been used as a public temple for the last 20 years; with the main grave are the Jayaprana and Layonsari, and a temple dedicated to Patih Sawung Galing on the outside. 

While visiting the grave, you can remember the loyalty of Layonsari who was willing to die together with her husband, Jayaprana. But there is also a myth that has developed until now, the bridal couple are not allowed to pass along the road in front of the grave of Jayaprana or if you have to pass the same place, the couple should be in different cars. If this belief is violated, it will cause an accident or inharmonious relationship for the couple. According to local beliefs, this is done so that they do not feel jealous since Jayaprana and Layonsari were not united in the world like the couple who pass this area.
