If you go to Buleleng, there’s nothing wrong to stop by at Tugu Bhuwana Kerta Buleleng. This monument is known to have an important role in the struggle of the Balinese people against the colonialists. Moreover, this monument is arguably proof of the pledge of allegiance of the Balinese people to the Indonesian State.

The beginning of its existence 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 a promise would be the Pura Republic. This promise they would fulfill when the Republic of Indonesia succeeded in winning against the colonialists.

In fact, there is no design on what the temple will look like. Until finally, the Balinese people agreed to build a monument at the designated location on March 31, 1966.




Important Symbols in the Bhuwana Kerta Buleleng Monument

The construction of the monument, which was later called Tugu Bhuwana Kerta Buleleng, requires an area of 1,350 hectares. This monument is considered as an appropriate representation to describe the struggle that has been carried out by the people of North Bali. The height of the monument, which was deliberately formed 17 meters, is considered a visualization of the sacred figures for Indonesia's independence day.

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




At the top of the monument, you will find padmasana and fire. Both are symbolized as gifts from the Creator who have given independence to the Indonesian people. The number of strands from Padmasana and the fire at the top were deliberately made to be 8, representing the month of Indonesian independence.

It's not enough to stop there. You can also get a pan with 45 gaps at the bottom of the monument. The number of 45 gaps is considered a representative of the year of Indonesian independence. With this symbolic representation, the Bhuwana Kerta Buleleng Monument has a very important meaning for the Balinese people.
