Perang Jempana “war of the gods”, Bugbug  

by on Tuesday, 10 October 2006No Comment | 2,069 views

This ritual occurs every two years on the full moon on the fourth month (October 7, 2006). The four villages (Bugbug, Ngis, Jasi and Bebandem) participate in a “war of the gods” which is in fact the enactment of an old legend:

The god of Bugbug had three daughters and one son. One of the daughter was to marry the god of Bebandem but she eloped with the god of Jasi. To appease the former, the god of Bugbug gave his second daughter and son to him, and the third daughter was married off to the god of Ngis. The war is to resolve the dispute, and the ritual battle takes place near the temple on the top of Gumang Hill.
