Denpasar is the capital of the island of Bali in Indonesia. On an area of 124 km² live 629,588 inhabitants (as of 2011).
In the center of the city is Puputan Square. He remembers the ritual mass murder (Puputan) in 1906 by name and with a monument. Until then, the center of the Kingdom of Badung lay here. The colonization of the region ended the regency, and the city received a new name. As a trading center, it was called Denpasar.
On the east side of the Taman Puputan was built in 1910 the Negeri Propinsi Bali, the most important museum in Bali, in a typical Balinese style. The museum grounds consist of three larger pavilions and is loosened by green areas. Several towers can be climbed and offer an impressive panoramic view over the entire complex.
