This monument or building is skyrocketing as high as 28 meters from the pedestal of the building located downtown Semarapura. The monument in the form of Lingam-Yoni and built in an area of 123 square meters was named Puputan Klungkung Monument and inaugurated by the Minister of Home Affairs on April 28, 1992. The entire monument building is made from black stone so it is in harmony with the meaning of Hindu philosophy, namely fighting all-out by the royal family of Klungkung Kingdom together with their people.
Puputan Klungkung Monument is situated in the middle of Semarapura City so it is easily achieved from Denpasar, Besakih or Candi Dasa because it sits on the outskirts of the road side with busy traffic. Additionally, location of the Puputan Klungkung Monument is very strategic because it is adjacent to Kertha Ghosa/Taman Gili, Shopping Centre, Traditional Market and Government Offices.
Since the inauguration, the Puputan Klungkung Monument has been visited by myriads of domestic and foreign tourists.
