The popularity of I Gusti Ngurah Rai as an Indonesian hero came from his involvement in the battle called “Puputan Margarana. He led his troops, known as Ciung Wenara, in defending the independence of his country. In this battle (Puputan Margarana) that happened in the village of Marga, Tabanan, 20 November 1946, he along with his troops fell. Now the great leadership of Ngurah Rai in the battle is always commemorated annually on 20 November by the people of Bali as a day of Puputan Margarana.
