In 2002, Bali was devastated by bombings that took place in Kuta, Legian's neighbouring district. You can visit the Memorial Wall, a heartfelt and sobering memorial to the 200-plus locals and visitors who were killed in the attack.
The Memorial Wall is a stunning structure and quite unique to the rest of the buildings on the street. It's a short walk or ride away from Legian, roughly sitting between this district and Kuta. On the wall are the names of those who lost their lives in the bombings, including 88 Australians.
Although it's not the kind of point of interest you'd expect to see on a tropical island holiday, the Memorial Wall marks one of the most recognisable historic events to take place in Bali and can make for a very thought-provoking experience, completely different to anything else you'll find.
