Bajra Sandhi Monument (Monumen Bajra Sandhi)

Jalan Raya Puputan, Denpasar, Bali, 80234

The Basics

There is a small fee to enter the Bajra Sandhi Monument and a more substantial charge to captures selfies in the I AM (Interactive Art Museum) Bali 3D Museum. Of course it’s free to admire the monument from the park that surrounds it, or indeed from the street. You don’t need to join a tour to visit here, but, as Denpasar is off the mainstream tourist trail and traffic can be hectic, many visit as part of a dedicated Denpasar tour or with a private driver/guide.
