President Inaugurates Monument Commemorating Bali's History.

(6/16/2003) On Saturday, June 14, 2003, President Megawati Soekarnoputri on a visit to Bali to open the 25th Annual Bali Arts Festival also made time to open the Monument to the Balinese People's Struggle (Monumen Perjuangan Rakyat Bali) located in the Niti Mandala area of the Renon sub-district of Denpasar.

Costing Rp. 11.3 billion (approximately US$ 1.35 million) and constructed sporadically over a period of 16 years, the Monument records Bali's history from prehistoric times through its struggle for independence from 1945-1950 via 33 dioramas.

Dominating the Niti Mandala Park Square, entrance to the monument is via the south side of the park. The Monument is divided into three sections with architecture inspired by Bali's Tri Mandala symbol.
