Greetings Donald,

That news was about the ceremony in Puri Jro Kuta.

Traditionally, Puri Jro Kuta is a close alliance of Puri Satria. My understanding is that the history of Puri Jro Kuta can be traced back to Jambe Merik (the brother of Batara Pemecutan Sakti).

For centuries (until now), nobody has been crowned as King in Puri Jro Kuta, but people still respect that Puri as one of the oldest Puri in Denpasar with several kings many centuries ago.

The areas mentioned in that news are not part of Jro Kuta. They are tradiotinally ruled by Puri Pemecutan since they are located on the western side of Badung River. The areas located on the eastern side of Badung
river are traditionally ruled by Puri Denpasar.
