The Sukarno Center is planning on building a monument statue and a museum in Tampaksiring, Gianyar to commemorate Indonesia's first President, Sukarno. said plans to erect the statue and museum near Bali's hillside presidential palace, first established during the Sukarno presidency, were announced following a meeting held March 29, 2010, between community leaders in Tampaksiring; the President of the Sukarno Center, I Gusti Ngurah Wedakarna; and Sukmawati, the daughter of the first president of the Republic.

At the same meeting, plans to change the name of Jalan Astina Selatan in Tampaksiring to Jalan Raya Sukarno were also discussed.

Plans for names changes, statues and museums were enthusiastically welcomed at the meeting by the people of Tampaksiring together with two representatives of the local House of Representatives (DPRD).

Plans for the road name change were first tabled one year ago and have received the official endorsement of Indonesia's Minister of Culture and Tourism, Jero Wacik.

With the Minister's recommendation in hand for the name change and the enthusiastic support of local community, the Sukarno Center is now bringing the proposal to the Regent of Gianyar, Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardana Sukawati.

Sukmawati, the daughter of the country's first president and sister of Indonesia's fifth president Megawati Sukarnoputri, explained the reasoning for the selection of the village to commemorate her father: "the Tampaksiring palace was chosen because this area has a historical connection with Bung Karno. The symbol of the Tampaksiring Palace cannot be separated from Bung Karno; this is the perfect place in Bali to build a statue, museum and a Jalan Sukarno."
