A “Discover the Heritage and History of Denpasar” was launched on Saturday, December 29, 2012 at the Agung Pemecutan Palace (Puri Agung Pemecutan) attended by hundreds of primary and secondary school students. In the days following the launch, students have descended on Puri Pemecutan to discover Bali’s capital via an historical walking tour passing along Jalan Thamrin, Jalan Gajah Mada, Jalan Veteran and ending at the Agung Satria Palace (Puri Agung Satria).

As reported by Bali Post, the Mayor of Denpasar, I.N. Rai Dharmawijaya Mantra told the press that the shape of Denpasar today can't be separated by the city’s past. “In the beginning, Denpasar was the seat of a kingdom. The people need to understand the Capital’s history in order to develop a love of the City. This is even more the case now that the founding of Denpasar has been fixed via research and academic investigation as having occurred in 1788. From that date we trace a long evolution from a kingdom’s seat, to a modern and finally to a post-modern city. On February 27, 2013, Denpasar will be 225 years old. For these reasons, the public must know the history of Denpasar,” explained Rai Mantra.

During the current Denpasar Festival the opportunity is being taken to introduce Denpasar’s rich history via the walking tours of discovery.

The “Z-shaped” route of the walking tour passes Jalan Gajah Mada, the commercial center heart of Denpasar until WW II. This area is also home to the Badung Market (Pasar Badung) with is still Denpasar’s largest market. Denpasar’s downtown is home to a pockets of communities of people of Arab descent (Jalan Sulawesi), Chinese lineage (Jalan Gajah Mada and Jalan Kartini), and a Javanese village in the area of Desa Dauh Puri Kaja.
