Bajra Sandhi Monument, Bali Overview

Denpasar city tours are incomplete without a stopover at the Bajra Sandhi monument, a grand structure built next to the Balinese governor's office to commemorate the struggles of the Balinese people throughout the years. It features a museum with diagrams, dioramas and murals to showcase the history of the Balinese people, and is tall enough to offer a panoramic view of the city.

The Bajra Sandhi Monument was completed in 2003, and it memorializes the oppression that the Balinese people faced. Built in accordance to the 'Tri-Mandala' principles that dictate that the building should have three sections; the Utama Mandala, the Nista Mandala, the Madya Mandala. Each section is distinct and adorned with dioramas that depict Bali's struggles under Dutch colonialism, its Hindu heritage, its royal lineage, and more.
