This sixty hectare cultural park is dedicated to the Hindu God Vishnu and his mount, the Garuda. As of time of writing, construction on the gigantic statue monument of Vishnu is ongoing, with the upper body and hands completed, and also the Garuda’s head. It is being sculpted by Nyoman Nuarta, a Balinese artist. See the fountain next to it, which is called the Parahyangan Somaka Giri; it is said to have healing powers.

Today the park is one of the most popular venues in the city for public events - exhibitions, fairs, festivals, conferences, concerts and performances. To this end it has an amphitheatre, an art gallery, a souvenir shop, 260 meters above the sea level, the park has an unparalleled view of the city and the ocean. The view is especially nice from the Indralok Garden. The Kecak dance is performed in the GWK amphitheatre every evening at 6:30pm. A parade goes around the park every day at 5pm.

The park is a great place for a stroll. The limestone walls and their carvings give is a sense a gravitas and history. There are also two restaurants inside the complex.

  • Like everything else you pay to park then pay to go inside. The price is too steep for the interior -125k per head. It comes with a drink coupon for a 6oz sweet tea if that helps. Walkable in 15 min. Would pay 50k max. To charge your own citizen is a bit much either way.

  • Spent 3 hrs which flew very quickly. Needed to allow full half day minimum. Great family cultural park. Many facets to see. Some parts still under development. Would recommend as part of your holiday to do list.

  • The park is not finished, however what is completed is nothing short of spectacular. The main statue is breathtaking and the miniature versions about the park are impressive too. I enjoyed the performance in the arena. I will be interested to see progress on my next visit. Only four stars due to the very long wait to get tickets for entry and the lack of signage made it difficult to figure out where we were to go to actually enter the park. I also did not appreciate being forced to walk through a souvenir shop on exit, you are led to believe this is the only way out...but it is not. I guess they need to make extra bucks somewhere. I did enjoy the visit!

  • What a phenomenal place to visit. The park is yet to be completed but it will be amazing when finished. The statues are breathtaking, proper awe inducing pieces because of the size and detail. There are plenty of places to eat or grab a coffee before you go inside the park. The amphitheatre & courtyard host shows throughout the day. It’s easy to wile away the hours here watching Balinese dancers & listening to traditional music. A couple of downsides; we bought tickets online but when we arrived, the employees had trouble processing so maybe simpler to buy once you are there rather than beforehand. We also included segways with our ticket only to be told we couldn’t use them inside the park, just in the courtyard. This should be made clearer. I would definitely recommend spending some time here whilst in Bali if you can!

  • The world biggest and highest no.3. You can see nice city view ,good restaurants, can buy any souvenirs and cultural show. The art gallery will be open January 2019. Should be go evening time around 5pm later you can see the baliness culture show and dance. I like them stone walls and tree and bus.
