Why Bajra Sandhi Monument is special ?

Bajra Sandhi Monument is a testament to the Balinese people’s struggle throughout time. The huge, awe-inspiring monument was built in 1987 and opened on 14 June 2013 by Indonesia’s president at the time, Megawati Sukarno Putri. The structure serves as a reminder to preserve and develop Balinese culture for future generations in an ever-changing and challenging climate.


The monument is enclosed in a walled courtyard, with a paved walkway encircling the building, and is surrounded by lush grass and trees. The architecture of the building is astounding, and the top tower offers incredible views, though is not recommended for those afraid of heights. The monument is made up of 33 dioramas that illustrate the journey of Balinese people from 300,000 B.C. up until modern day, showing Bali’s political, economic, social and cultural growth and development.

What to explore at Bajra Sandhi Monument?

The area is a hive of activity on Sunday mornings, when hundreds of runners, cyclists and yoga enthusiasts gather to enjoy the park. Traditional food is sold and the street is closed to support the activity, so it’s a great time to head over with family and friends.

Through depicting Bali’s rich history, the Bajra Sandi is designed to help visitors better understand the soul and spirit of Balinese people. The monument is situated in the centre of Denpasar City, in front of the Governor Office. Other tourist destinations are close by, such as Jagatnatha Temple, Badung Market, Bali Museum and Sanur Beach, so it’s definitely worth stopping by.
