THE TREASURES OF DENPASAR - BALI
 
The capital of Bali is often considered a sprawling and noisy city that has attracted thousands of inhabitants from the rest of the island. It is also the first stop-over point for any visitor to Bali.Arriving at Ngurah Rai Airport, one is struck immediately by the warmth of the hosts. The city is indeed filled with treasures from its rich and colorful past. The airport itself is named after a freedom fighter, I Gusti Ngurah Rai, who led a small band of soldiers towards the end of 1946, in the struggle against the colonial rulers of that time, the Dutch. A1194 soldiers led by Ngurah Rai were slaughtered, now remembered by a monument near the airport. The site where the fight took place is now called Margarana cemetery. The 20th November is designated "Margarana Heroes' Day" and celebrated with parades and other public ceremonies.

The center of life in the city revolves around Puputan Square. In the center of the Square is a bronze memorial for those who lost their lives in the one-sided struggle with the Dutch. At one corner of the Square stands a 5-metre stone statue dedicated to the "Great Teacher" - Shiva. What makes this unusual is that the face to the east is Indra (Iswara), to the south it is Brahma, to the north Vishnu, and to the west Mahadewa. Also within the Square is the contemporary- looking Pura Jagatnata, the "Temple of the Lord of the World". Within it is an ornate statue of the Supreme God, Sanghyang Widhi Wasa.
