Catur Mukha

The centre of the town and a lively spot during Denfest. Other times you can just chill in the ground.

We went to Puputan Square in Denpasar to view the puputan monument, which is a beautiful and emotional sculpture depicting a man, his wife and their son commencing puputan. We weren't prepared for the beautiful gardens in which it sits. Cool and shady, with a nice breeze, the entire area is wonderful. There is plenty of seating and we saw... More

Flashing back to the past history, where a great battle in Bali happened here. It seems quiet of any activities.

Essentially a square to commemorate a mass suicide site in Bali in light of the Dutch invasion. Close to the Bali Museum it's a open space area that is smaller than Renon Square.

Lapangan Puputan is a battleground during the War Puputan Badung in 1906 when the Dutch invaded Denpasar. Latter-day this place used by the people do their outdoor activities, like jogging, cycling. Beside the Lapangan Puputan you can try to visit Pura Jagatnatha or Museum Bali

If you are heading somewhere in Denpasar then make a small detour to find this monument, as it is well worth a visit, the grounds are emasculate and the monument if you climb the spiral staircase has some great views of Denpasar, 360 degrees. This costs 10,000 rupiah (NZ$1)for an adult and 5000 for a child. You won't need to... More

I have been working in Renon since 1 month now, and I keep enjoying my one hour stroll or a nice pic-nic in the Puputan park. The athmosphere is laid back & sporty at the same time.

Plain grassy area. Statue on one side. Rubbish littered across the grass particularly by the museum Bali and temple. Plenty of pushy tour guides in the area and people flogging their wares. Not recommended, best avoided.
