Historical Traces of Sukarno Museum at Tampaksiring

The name of Tampaksiring is no more bizarre because the famous Tirta Empul Temple is situated here. It is the sanctum of Hindu frequently visited by tourists as well as the location of the presidential palace of the Republic of Indonesia. The palace is frequently used for presidential activities or just for resting place for the presidents, moreover during the era of President Sukarno.

The word Tampaksiring is taken from two Balinese words, namely tampak (meaning ‘sole’) and siring (meaning ‘oblique’). According to a legend in the Usana Bali palm-leaf manuscript, the name was derived from the soles of the former king named Mayadenawa. He was a clever and powerful king, but insolence. The nature of Mayadenawa made the Lord Indra angry so the Lord Indra sent his troops to kill the former. However, Mayadenawa ran into the woods. To make his pursuer lose tracks, he walked by tilting the soles of his feet. By doing so, he hoped the pursuers would not recognize if the traces left behind were the traces of Mayadenawa.

 

Existence of the Tampaksiring Presidential Palace was based on the initiative of the first President of the Republic of Indonesia, Sukarno. Therefore, it can be said if the Tampaksiring Presidential Palace is the only palace built during the reign of Indonesia. Construction of the palace took place from 1957 to 1960. Later on, the government renovated the Wantilan Hall in 1993 as a venue to stage diverse art performances.

Since the construction, the Tampaksiring Presidential Palace was designed for a resting place for the president of the Republic of Indonesia, their families and state guests. Currently, Tampaksiring has a new museum and is named Museum of Sukarno the Proclaimer President of the RI. The museum established by the Sukarno Center showcasing about 150 photograph collections of Bung Karno and some relics of the Indonesia’s first president was inaugurated on Thursday (Nov 10). The two-floored building spread over an area of 1,000 square meters was inaugurated by the Chairman of The Sukarno Center’s Board of Trustees who is also the daughter of Bung Karno, Sukmawati Sukarnoputri.

“Historical evidences that can be seen in this museum are in the form of photos mostly come from the archives of Bung Karno Foundation. The collections presented are those remaining to be well preserved,” said Sukmawati. Sukmawati also hoped that people could immediately recognize Bung Karno by watching the collections in the museum. In the future, the museum would continue to be developed so that more collections could be displayed. (BTN/014)
