Very nice park. Huge one in the city. I had visited the monument twice. Good for students to learn history. The monument itself not large. The architecture and statues are nice. Good spot for taking picture for photograph. I paid 10k for entry. But I had seen some people enter without paying anything. Worth to visit though

Nice green spot in the city, a park about 0.5 km on a side. Bajra Sandi monument actually isn’t old, it was built 1987. We went hoping to find a serious museum and learn about Balinese history. The 3rd floor has about 30 dioramas with brief captions. It didn’t meet our hopes for history but it was interesting.
