Pura Paluang (Dijkman, 2014)

At some 200 m altitude, in the west of Nusa Penida, close to Bunga Mekar, sits the temple of Paluang, towering over steep limestone cliffs. The name of the temple could be explained as 'pa-luwang'. The prefix 'pa-' (nomen agentis) in combination with 'luwang', which in Balinese has various meanings, a.o.: lacking arm or foot; forest, jungle; the one day of the ékawara (the one-day week). This needs verification.
