Air conditioned history museum
Dec 2019
Our driver took us to this monument/history museum on our way to somewhere else.Entrance was 50000rph each to get in.If you are interested in history then you will enjoy the 3D displays and written histories.Not much else to see but the building and gardens are nice and great views from the top floor.The building is air conditioned which was fabulous as it was a very humid day

Reasonably photogenic
Sep 2019
Went near noon when it was pretty hot, the place was largely deserted but there were still some folks doing wedding photos - apparently this monument was judged photogenic enough for such purposes. The admission fee was a bit stiff, and there was not much of interest inside the monument itself. But the various structures of the monument did serve as a good setting for some nice photos, particularly when the place was not too crowded (the place seemed to be particularly popular with Chinese tourists)

A nice and crowded place
Jul 2019 • Solo
Visiting Bajra Sandhi Momument last Sunday, it is a well-maintained place, worth a visit if you are not far away from it. Right next to it is Bali 3 D Museum, so you can visit also visit it if you are interested. Beside it is a large park, which is pleasant to sit on a sunny Sunday afternoon. In my short visit, I meet five couples taking their marriage pictures there (they have a ticket for couples who want to take marriage pictures there, so it IS a popular place). Two of the couples seem to be local people or Indonesians. Three of them are from mainland China, and one couple is especially rude. They block at least two doorways for long time, and don't care if anyone need to pass. I meet them at another door, and they even lock the door , and show a bad attitude when you walk near which make me really uncomfortable. They really need to know what politeness is before they can be popular visitors.

Imposing Monument
Mar 2019 • Solo
This a very imposing monument, unfortunately when I visited all gates were locked and it was not open to tourists and, I think, also closed for public access. Perhaps closed from the ceremonies of previous days. The monument is dedicated to the struggles of the Balinese people, construction commenced in 1987 and it was officially opened on14th June 2003. The monument immortalises the soul and spirit of the Balinese people struggles. Again, our guide was invaluable and gave a good explanation of the historical and symbolic sections of the structure.

17-08-1945 plunger
Feb 2019 • Solo
Possibly the architect Ida Bagus Gede Yadnya was hampered by the numbers 17-08-1945 (Indonesia's day of independence). 17 steps to the main platform, 8 columns in a circle and a structure not taller than 45 meters. Perhaps he intended it to look like Borobudur and that was what convinced the 1987 jury to select his design. However in my view the result is not attractive. Especialy the plunger on top of the structure put me off.

Entrance fee 40,000 IDR for foreigners 20,000 IDR Indonesians. Not really encouraging to motivate foreigners to learn about Bali's history.

I very much liked the beautiful park surroundings.

Beautiful monument, well kept
Jan 2019 • Couples
This was a peaceful monument, in the middle of a town crowded with tourists. A place not frequented by many but if you are in Bali and have any inclination towards History or would love to see the great architecture you must visit here. It’s a ckean well kept monument in a clean and green compound. If you visit then do climb the spiral staircase to the top level and take a birds eye view of this lovely island. Also visit the museum to know more about Bali and Indonesian history, their evolution and struggle for freedom. Sadly there was no information written any where about the monument itself neither was there any official who could help us with the info on how old the place is or who made this monument etc.

Balinese architecture and history
Dec 2018 • Couples
An impressive monument/building in a pretty park, but quite empty inside. The dioramas of Balinese history may interest some, and the view from above is quite nice. The grounds provide a good backdrop for your photos.

Historical Monument and Expansive Grounds
Dec 2018 • Solo
I went to see this monument late Sunday morning. It is clear that the weekends are very popular as there were some parties in the grounds. People were having picnics and playing music.

The monument itself is very impressive. It catalogues in pictures the history of Bali. There are also great views from the top floor that you access via a winding staircase. I recommend a visit to Bajra Sandhi is you are in Denpasar. Please also note that there is a 50,000 rupiah entrance fee to the monument
