Denpasar is the capital city and main hub of the Indonesian province of Bali, in the southern part of the island. Laid-back Sanur Beach on the east coast offers sunrise views. The nearby Pura Blanjong Temple contains a stone pillar with a 10th-century inscription. The Bali Museum displays a large collection of Balinese cultural artefacts, including traditional costumes and religious items. With a population of 491,500 (2002), it is the capital of the province of Bali.
The center of the city is the Puputan Square , which in 1906 reminds us of the ritual mass murder (‘Puputan’). The prince and his court at the time opposed a Dutch military power, which had landed in Sanur, and had entered the city. To avoid a shameful defeat, they directed themselves with the Kris or ran into the Dutch gunfire. Up to this point, the center of the Principality was “Badung.” With the extinction of the Regency by colonial income, the city was given a new name. Because of its important function as a trade center, it was then called Denpasar (meaning “central market”). The imperial stamp “Pura Jagatnatha”, destroyed in Puputan in 1906, was rebuilt in 1908. Today, Badung is the district (county) on the left side from Denpasar since the city borders were defined in 1992. Denpasar is home to the traditional seaside resort of Sanur, which is highly respected by the Balinese for ritual cleansing and concluding ceremonies of incendiary burns (nests). There, on the beach, is the temple of Barunas, the god of the sea. Denpasar is an important traffic hub in Bali. Also close by is the Denpasar Ngurah Rai International Airport. Udayana University is based in the city. The shopping center Plaza Bali has its headquarters here.
Kumbasari Market is a center of town’s economics which is located in Gajah Mada Street, that is main road and become a shopping center of Bali. This traditional market is apposite to the village temple that is one of three biggest temples in Denpasar. It is initially does not as big as like now because have changed experiences and modification which is adapting to the requirement and town growth. This market cannot be discharged from the existence of an existing market in the cross Badung’s river that is called Kumbasari Market. It is because, the local people will feel incompletely go for shopping if they not come to Kumbasari Market. It is especially for the Balinese who want to buy the ceremony items.
