This incorporates a Desa or Village Temple as a place to worship God Brahma (the Creator), a Puseh Temple to worship God Vishnu (the Preserver), and a Dalem Temple to worship Lord Shiva (the Destroyer). The name “Batuan” or “Baturan” mentioned here prompts villagers to joke about being “tough as stone” or “eating rocks” — as batu means “stone” in Balinese. But it likely refers to an ancient megalithic tradition in which standing stones served as meeting places and ceremonial sites for the worship of ancestral spirits. However Batuan became a center from which Buddhist priests and brahmans spread to the main court centers of south Bali, the village has an unusual preponderance of brahmans.
