The Historical Attractions Tugu Bhuana Kerta

If you go to Buleleng, tourists need to take the time to stop at Tugu Bhuana Kerta Buleleng. This monument is known to have an important role in the struggle of the Balinese people against the invaders. Moreover, this monument can be said, is also proof of the loyalty of the Balinese people to the State of Indonesia.

The beginning of the existence of Tugu Bhuana Kerta Buleleng can be traced to the incident that took place on January 17, 1948. At that time, the people of northern Bali, made a promise that the location where they made their promise would be built a Republican Temple. They will fulfill that promise when the Republic of Indonesia wins against the invaders.

However, the word Pura Republik which was made in the promise of the people of North Bali still does not have a clear physical form. In fact, there is no design yet how the shape of the temple will be. Until finally, the Balinese agreed to build a monument or monument at the designated location on March 31, 1966.


The History of the Construction of the Bhuana Kerta Monument

The construction of the monument, which was later called Tugu Bhuana Kerta Buleleng, required an area of ??1,350 hectares. The monument in the form of a monument is considered the right representation to describe the struggles that have been carried out by the people of North Bali. The height of the monument which was deliberately set at 17 meters is considered a visualization of the sacred figures of Indonesia's independence day.

Despite choosing a monument design that is considered appropriate in representing the struggle of the Indonesian people, in its construction, this monument still represents Balinese culture. This design can be seen by the presence of several Balinese symbols that can be found on this historic monument.

At the top of the monument, tourists will find the presence of padmasana and fire. Both are symbolized as gifts from the Creator who has given independence to the people of Indonesia. The number of strands of padmasana and the fire at the top was deliberately made to have 8 strands, representing the month of Indonesian independence. It's not enough to stop there. Tourists can also get a tray with a gap of 45 pieces at the bottom of the monument. The number of 45 gaps is considered to be representative of the year of the independence of the Indonesian nation. With this symbol representation, Tugu Bhuana Kerta Buleleng has a very important meaning for the Balinese people.
