Setra Badung

Setra Badung merupakan salah satu kuburan di Bali yang terletak di tengah Kota Denpasar, tepatnya di Jalan Imam Bonjol. Setra ini dibuat oleh Raja Badung sebagai tempat pengabenan (penguburan) bagi keluarga raja dan rakyatnya. Sampai saat ini, masyarakat melaksanakan upacara adat seperti pengabenanan di Setra Badung.


Di sebelah Pura Kepuh Kembar di areal Setra Badung terdapat Makam Gusti Ayu Made Rai atau yang disebut juga dengan Raden Ayu Siti Khotijah yang ramai dikunjungi oleh peziarah. Gusti Ayu Made Rai adalah seorang Putri dari Raja Pemecutan yang menderita suatu penyakit. Berbagai pengobatan telah dilakukan, namun sang Putri tidak juga kunjung sembuh.


Di tengah keputusasaannya, Raja Pemecutan mengadakan sayembara untuk menyembuhkan Gusti Ayu Made Rai. Mendengar sayembara tersebut, datanglah Pangeran Cakraningrat IV dari Bangkalan, Madura bertekad untuk mengobati sang Putri. Melalui mantra-mantra suci, Pangeran Cakraningrat IV berhasil menyembuhkan Gusti Ayu Made Rai. Menepati janji sayembaranya, Raja Pemecutan menikahkan sang Putri dengan Pangeran Cakraningrat IV yang merupakan seorang Muslim.


Beberapa lama setelah menetap di Madura, Gusti Ayu Made Rai meminta ijin kepada suaminya untuk pulang ke kampung halamannya. Saat sedang berada di Puri kelahirannya, Putri melaksanakan ibadah sholat maghrib di Merajan Puri (tempat persembahyangan). Seorang Patih yang tidak mengetahui bahwa Gusti Ayu Made Rai telah menganut agama Islam melihat hal itu dan mengira Putri sedang mendalami Ilmu Hitam. Gusti Ayu Made Rai digiring ke areal pemakaman untuk dibunuh.


Di tengah keputusasaannya untuk meyakinkan bahwa dia tidak sedang mendalami ilmu hitam, Putri berpesan agar menusuk dadanya dengan tusuk konde yang diikat dengan daun sirih dan dililit dengan benang tiga warna: merah, putih dan hitam. Gusti Ayu Made Rai dimakamkan di sebelah Pura Kepuh Kembar. Dua hari setelah pemakaman Putri, tumbuh sebuah pohon dari bagian kepala makamnya, dan dipercayai tumbuh dari rambut Gusti Ayu Made Rai. Sampai saat ini, pohon itu terus tumbuh dan diberi nama Pohon Rambut atau Taru Rambut.


Badung Cemetery

Badung Cemetery is one of the cemeteries in Bali which is located in the middle of Denpasar City, precisely on Jalan Imam Bonjol. It was created by King of Badung as a place of burial for the royal family and its people. Until today, the community has carried out traditional ceremony such as the incineration at Badung Cemetery.


Next to the Kepuh Kembar Temple in Badung Cemetery area, there is Gusti Ayu Made Rai's Tomb or also known as Raden Ayu Siti Khotijah which is often visited by pilgrims. Gusti Ayu Made Rai was a daughter of King of Pemecutan who was suffering from an illness. Various treatments have been done, but the Princess did not get any better.


In his despair, the King held a contest to cure Gusti Ayu Made Rai. Discovering the contest, Prince Cakraningrat IV of Bangkalan, Madura was determined to heal the Princess. Through holy spells, the Prince succeeded to cure Gusti Ayu Made Rai. Keeping the promise of his contest, King of Pemecutan married the Princess to Prince Cakraningrat IV, who was a Muslim.


Sometime after settled in Madura, Gusti Ayu Made Rai asked permission from her husband to return to her hometown. When she was in the Palace, the Princess was doing the Maghrib prayer at the Palace's place of worship. The guard who did not know that Gusti Ayu Made Rai had adopted Islam saw this and thought that the Princess went deep into black magic. Gusti Ayu Made Rai was brought to the cemetery to be killed.


In her desperation to convince people that she was not deep in black magic, the Princess urged them to pierce her chest with a hairpin tied with betel leaves and wrapped in three-colored thread: red, white and black. Gusti Ayu Made Rai was buried next to the Kepuh Kembar Temple. Two days after the Princess's funeral, a tree grew from the head of her tomb and was believed to grow from Gusti Ayu Made Rai's hair. Until today, the tree continues to grow and is named Hair Tree or Taru Rambut.
