Why Bajra Sandhi Museum 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.

Tips for you
This place is popular to locals, on weekdays it is occupied mostly by students from many local schools exercising. They will play soccer, aerobics, basketball, and volleyball here. There is also daily morning yoga that public visitor can join, one is free and the other is with a small fee. On weekends, family with young kids, teenagers mostly occupy this square. They bring their pets, bicycles, and do fun family morning walk. Seeing opportunity of these many people gathering, some businesses often open promotion booths here. Many kinds of food stalls and cart can be found here, but my favorite would be the Spicy Balinese Pork Satay sold by Balinese ladies bringing their grills to the square, not exactly healthy food after exercise ;)
