The charm of Balinese history is ready to take you deeper
into the other side of the island. Start with some historical
sites in Denpasar, the capital of Bali. Artifacts and
historical heritages, and old story scratch will bring you to
feel the flaming of the Balinese peoples at that time.
Join a half-day city tour to encounter some of Bali's fascinating heritages in Denpasar, Bali's capital. Where we will visit Puputan Badung Square firsthand, an urban park with a tragic and violent history. More than 100 years ago it was the site of a colossal and bloody puputan, or mass death, which resulted from a rebellion against the Dutch. It is an interesting location to learn about the history of the Balinese and their struggles against the Dutch colonizers. Next to Puputan Square is the Bali Museum, which was established in 1932. The museum has the finest collections of Balinese antiquities, in which the stylistic simplicity of the items in its 30 collections is of particular interest. And then, next to it is Jagatnata Temple, a Hindu place of worship. The temple is beautifully designed and is full of religious and artistic ornaments. Next up you can visit Pasar Badung traditional market and witness the locals going about their daily business. In Kumbasari Market you may find plenty of Balinese cloth and handicrafts. After that, we will proceed to Puri Jero Kuta, one of great royal family houses in Denpasar. And finally, taking a walk through Jalan Gajah Mada, an old shopping area in town, which is listed as the heritage area of the city because of its authentic, old-school architectural style of the buildings.
Make a photo stop at the Catur Muka (four faces) statue, the Landmark of Denpasar. On the way back to your hotel, stop at the Bajra Sandhi Monument in Renon, a symbol of Bali’s struggle for independence once the Dutch colonizers had left the country.
