About Bajra Sandhi Monument

The centerpiece of the civic square of Denpasar is the Bajra Sandhi Monument. It houses a diorama gallery on its second floor, which exhibits a glimpse into Balinese history from as early as 3,000 BC right up to the struggle against the Dutch during the fight for Indonesian Independence. Situated in the heart of Denpasar city, the Bajra Sandhi Monument gives prominence to the struggle faced by the Balinese people and preserves their cultural aspects to pass on this history to the future generations. Built in 1987, the monument has 33 dioramas portraying stories from history. The name Bajra represents the shape of a bell used in religious ceremonies. The monument clenches within it many sentimental moments and an attitude of pride and honor for the challenges faced and won. A parking area, public toilets, shuttle bus, food stalls, and other facilities are available.
