The battle, fought on the hill of Gunung Sari, was ended by the defeat of the King. A temple, known as Pura Gunung Sari, was erected on the hilltop as the witness of the tragedy. It is four kilometres from Mataram to the north.
The royal floating palace (Bale Kambang) of the former Balinese kingdom which was built in 1714, it is located in Cakranegara, right opposite to the Pura Meru temple that was built in 1720.
