Visit the ongoing construction of a 145-metre statue at Garuda Wisnu Kencana cultural park and watch a mesmerizing Balinese dance to end your night!
Kick off your Balinese cultural tour with a visit to the private cultural park of Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK). The park sits on the southern coast of the island of Bali. It is famous for being the location of the ongoing construction of a gigantic statue depicting Vishnu, the second god in the Hindu triumvirate, riding majestically upon the back of a garuda (a supernatural eagle-like being). As of now, only the upper torso of Vishnu has been completed along with his hands and the head of the garuda.
When the full sculpture is complete, it will stand at a massive 145 metres in height, making it one of the world’s tallest statues. The garuda will have a wingspan of 64-metres. The completed statue will be erected on the top of the hill in the park to be shown off in a magnificent panoramic view. Made of copper, steel and brass and sculpted to detail, GWK will be sure to astound many as it reflects sunlight from high above once it is complete. The garuda will have a wingspan of 64-metres.
After witnessing the sunset, proceed to one of the local villages for a Kecak dance performance. Balinese dances are known to be uniquely artistic and extremely cultural, often telling stories of myths or legends and even deities. Costumes are intricately designed and often are colourful and shiny. Headpieces and jewellery are also usually worn. Props may be used and in some instances, the props can be things like fire. The interpretative dances are mesmerizing and enchanting, so sit back and enjoy the show!
