The monument symbolizing the Balinese people struggle to achieve the Indonesian independence. Built from black lava rock, this priest's bell like monument houses dioramas depicting Balinese history from prehistoric time up to the present day.

This was the last attraction I visited on my last day in Denpasar. All I could say when I saw it was, " Wow, Wow, Wow!". Located in a big park, this attraction is centrally located. All buildings around it are excellent places to take pictures. Climbing up circular stairs will show an aerial view of the park and areas... More

This is not unusual looking but unusual because the memorial is dedicated to Balinese people who sacrificed themselves during the Puputan War against the Dutch. Inside there are dioramas tracing Bali’s history and excellent view of the gardens. There is a fee and the park and memorial are opened every day, closing at 5pm.

Impressive monument set in beautiful gardens. Well worth seeing if staying in Denpasar. Admission 40K Rp. - which includes entry to a small museum depicting the history of Bali. The museum contains various dioramas depicting significant events (including several depicting Dutch soldiers being killed).

You can see the monument from far out but what I was really impressed with was the gardens so beautiful. We walked round outside then climbed to the look out point. In the second floor they have a story of Bali history including the invasion.

Bajra Sandhi is a monument built in typical Balinese style surrounded by a nice park where people play football or just hang out. If the weather is nice it's worth a walk, but keep in mind the opening hours as entering the main building is only allowed during these.

You have a goodview of Denpasar from the top of the monument and can get a bit airwhen you go up the stairs. In the middle you can find a diorama of Bali's history which is nicely done and woth looking at. The entry fe is 20,000 IDR per person at the moment.
