Among other things which are named after or have anything to do with Balinese national hero I Gusti Ngurah Rai (i.e. Ngurah Rai International Airport, Ngurah Rai by pass, or Margarana Heroes Burial Park), Tanah Aron is the least known and given adequate attention.


Tanah Aron is located at the foot of mount Agung, near the village of Budakeling, in Karangasem regency. It was the place where I Gusti Ngurah Rai and his Ciung Wanara troops fought against Dutch’s troops and hide from Dutch’s aerial bombardment. Ngurah Rai and his troops managed to escape the Dutch’s attack and continue their guerrilla warfare until met their final fate in a battle in Margarana.

Tanah Aron

A monument was built to commemorate the battle most of Balinese do not know the existence of this monument and the battle of Tanah Aron; and of course only few Balinese ever visited this place maybe because the steep and bumpy road which has to be traveled by the visitor to reach the monument.

However, Tanah Aron not just has a monument to boast of, the view of Bali east coast and the eastern are of Karangasem from this place is stunning. It is better to visit Tanah Aron in the morning to get the best view of the coast from the height of this place.
