According to the history when a Hindu Priest Dang Hyang Nirartha travelled from Pulaki to the eastern part of Bali, he was resting on the top of a plateau in Petang Village. When he continued his journey, he left behind his umbrella at the retreat. The Umbrella left by him was seen by the local community in the evening glowing and having magical powers, so that the King of Mengwi at that time ordered the local people to build shrine in the form of three Storey Meru as a respect for the merit of Dang Hyang Nirartha. Then the top of the hill was named Puncak Tedung que scenery of Eastern, Western as well as Southern part of Bali is outspread. It’s really a perfect place for those who love to look for inspiration, meditation in the peace of nature.
