The biggest beji in Kenderan village is located in Banjar in Kepitu. Located on the edge of the river Tungkang. Drinking water supplier for Ubud and its surroundings. Built in the 10th century as the hermitage center of the Kasogatan Buddhist priest, for hundreds of years it has been a place for ascetics to attain moksa. In ancient times it was widely known to the island of Java.

Written in the classic Negarakretagama script by Mpu Prapanca in the 13th century AD, in Java it is known as talaga dwaja. The marker is in the form of archeological evidence with the discovery of niches and there is a seal relief shaped like the letter h carved on the southern wall. There are two sacred ponds, the topmost of which is the place where the gods and goddesses chant and the second pond is the place for the widyadara widyadari. This Beji is a very important and sacred place for melukat.

The local people believe that it is a place of worship to open the path to enlightenment and ask for a baby. Residents of Subak Batu often ask for rain blessings for their rice fields in Beji Telaga Waja. If you want to do melukat, it is hoped that you will be guided by a jro mangku or accompanied by local residents, because the rules for the melukat ritual here are very strict which have been passed down from generation to generation.
