BRUGELETTE – Pairi Daiza: Royaume de Ganesha – The Temples

The 4-hectare (9.9-acre) Kingdom of Ganesha, which was opened in 2009, is the largest Indonesian garden in Europe, and reproduces the plant life and feel of the Indonesian archipelago, particularly Bali. Its collections include Pura Agung Shanti Buwana Balinese Hindu temple, East Nusa Tenggara and Toraja traditional houses and miniature replicas of Borobudur and Prambanan temples. In August 2009 the Indonesian government has sent a pair of Sumatran elephants to enliven the Indonesian Park. It is the first endangered animal breeding loan program that Indonesia ever had in Europe.The temple is a tribute to the supreme deity that favours harmony, serenity, prosperity and happiness. Indeed, ‘Agung’ stands for large, Santi for serene and Bhuwana for the Universe.Pairi Daiza dedicated this temple to the Hindu community of the Lage Landed. As with all Hindu temples the basic structure is based on precise symbolic, numerological and astrological calculations.
