Indonesia – Bali – Banjra Sandhi Monument

– JUNE 11, 2015

Bajra Sandhi Monument is a tribute to the Balinese People’s Struggle.  This monument is recognized by the name of Bajra Sandhi due to its form resembling the bell used by all Hindu priests in reading off the Weda holy sentence (mantra) at religious ceremonies.  It was built in 1987, but opened to all public in 2003.  The purpose of this monument is to immortalize the soul and spirit of the Balinese people’s struggle over the history of the country.  It is to remind the young people of Bali of their world of progressively challenging resistance.
