He will accompany with Ki Patih Sawung Galing and 40 soldiers . Actually this was a trick just to take him away from his house and his new married girl Layon Sari .
Once arrive at the harbour , Patih Sawung Galing sadly told Nyoman Jaya Prana that he have to kill him as what the King told him . Nyoman Jaya Prana realize that his life will end here , as an orphan cared for and raised by the king . He owes his life to the King and he is surrender and accept to die even he knows his martial art can depend him and fight for his life . Patih Sawung Galing martial art skill is bellow Nyoman Jaya Prana .But he don't do that , he don't fight with the King's loyal Servant , he asked Ki Sawong Galing to kill him and he will not fight back .

Seeing that the king went crazy, then he attacked everyone around him and killed them. This is the beginning of the destruction of the Kalianget kingdom where people sympathetic with Jaya Prana death put up a fight. There was a civil war, murder everywhere and the kingdom was destroyed in one day. All descendants of King Kalianget sought refuge elsewhere in Bali . Some of them went to Tabanan regency and stay there . One of his son becamoe priest in Besakih and stay in Padang Aji Karangasem , he become a priest from Ksatrya kaste . Ki Sawung Galing went to the south to serve King of Badung .
Some of the remaining people from the civil war then buried Layon Sari's body beside Jaya Prana's grave. And built a temple site to honor the death of a couple and as a symbol of eternal love . Now days this temple become one of the famous religious site to local around Bali . We come over for praying and ask for blessing especially for a couples who falling in love .
