Designed by Taman Budaya’s architect, Ida Bagus Tugur, it was built specifically to commemorate Bali’s various puputans during the struggle against the Dutch as well as mark Indonesian Independence Day by featuring eight entrances, seventeen corners and a height of 45m, numbers that all correspond to that date - August 17th, 1945.

Built in 1987 and inaugurated on June 14, 2003, this monument symbolizes the spirit of struggle, Balinese art and culture as a form of melastarikan to be passed down to future generations.
