Abstract
The place where Hindus take holy water for religious purposes is often referred to as the Patirthan Temple. Of the many Patirthan temples in Bali, the Patirthan Tirta Empul Temple is allegedly built during the reign of Bali Kuno Sri Candra Bhaya Singha Warmadewa who issued the Manukraya inscription on 882 saka (960M) and stated that the King inaugurated two springs called 'tirtha in the water'. Pragmatic, commodification is a phenomenon that is developing today, everything can be sold and traded to get money, with all the needs can be met. With money all new needs created by that need (consumerism) can be bought, to increase the social status symbol. In the current era of globalization, Patirthan Temple is dominated by activities that bring money compared to religious activities that have been given a place of the past. Shifting the way people think from spiritual to material becomes more real, the reality has shown that cultural capital has turned into economic capital. This research solves some of the problems outlined as follows: Why is there a transformation from cultural capital to economic capital? Are there any implications for the lives of these people? Theoretical orientation of research uses a cultural study approach through the theory of commodification, deconstruction. The method used in this research is qualitative method, qualitative descriptive and interpretive data analysis. This study found that cultural capital that has been transformed into economic capital is very clearly witnessed at the Patirthan Tirta Empul Temple arena. Based on the value study that Patirthan can be divided into three, namely, religious values, pragmatic values, and socio-economic values. The three components interact and compete with each other, but today pragmatic values and socio-economic values are more prominent and more dominant.
