Pura Besakih Beefs Up Security

Local Village and Police Cooperate to Improve Security at Bali's Mother Temple Complex.

(8/9/2004) In response to growing complaints of petty crime and harassments by unlicensed guides and others at Bali's ancient Mother Temple Complex Pura Besakih village officials and the local police precinct have agreed to create a higher law enforcement presence at the popular religious site on the slopes of Mount Agung.

The chief of Prakraman Besakih Village, I Wayan Gunatra, recently announced that an agreement had been reached with the local police precinct to increase from one to three the number of police posts around the complex. The village, home to Bali's most sacred temple, also said the pacalang or village security force which numbers 30 men would also be increasing its level of vigilance to ensure a more orderly environment for pilgrims, worshippers and tourist visitors to Pura Besakih.
