Interesting facts about Bali (Denpasar)

The biggest city on Indonesia’s island of Bali, Denpasar is a major gateway to the place nicknamed the “Island of the Gods”.

Sights in Denpasar

Culture lovers are sure to be enthralled by Denpasar’s temples. The major religion on Bali is Hinduism; in contrast to most of the nation’s other islands, which are mainly Muslim. Local temples in Denpasar include the remains of the ancient Pura Maospahit and the state-built Pura Agung Jagatnatha. Every month, large ceremonies take place here for the full moon and dark moon. The Palace of Satria and the Royal Temples are among the city’s grandest buildings. The gigantic statue of Catur Mukha takes pride of place in Puputan Square at the heart of the city. Bali Museum takes visitors on a journey through Bali’s past and up to the present day. Spread across four buildings, the museum’s collections include religious artefacts, textiles, ancient archaeological finds and traditional clothing. Learn more about the significance of the small spirit offerings that can be seen on the floor and in small shrines scattered all around the island.

The Sidik Jari Museum is an intimate fine art museum and the Taman Wedhi Budaya Cultural Centre is dedicated to Balinese art. It features a large collection of both paintings and sculptures. Taman Budaya (Bali Art Centre) is a top place to see a traditional Balinese performance. Visit Lapangan Puputan Margarana to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and relax in the impressive park. Within the park you’ll find a large monument that celebrates the independence of Indonesia. Towards the end of each year, the city hosts Denpasar Festival, often shortened to DenFest. The festivities showcase the city’s cultural diversity and creative spirit, with traditional food and dancing, competitions and awards, and stalls selling local handicrafts.
