Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park - Review

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.

  • It has change a lot from the first time I visit few years ago. A bit expencive, and confusing route inside. Not so clear where to start and what to see. I was confused and need to asked many time for direction. The statue is just OK, not something extraordinary. Although, one of it is one of the tallest in its kind, about 120m. It is great and huge space for an event, big concert or exhibition. The attraction such dancing is just fine.

  • This is a great statue. It is a real credit to the willing construction team. It has been going on for a number of years but now the optimistic dreams of a group of people is finally coming into fruition. A great effort and well done by the entire crew. You can stand tall with pride. I am impressed.

  • The main statue blew my mind. I noticed it as I flew into Indonesia and was curious to find out what it was. Definitely worth a check, get it off your to see list. Lots of nice places to take photos and enjoy the scenery. I recommend taking the bus tour as it will really help you coming back down once you've seen all the monuments!

  • I've been around the world a few times. Eiffel tower, statue of liberty, Brazil Christ statue to name a few memorable. But never, ever in my life have a seen a more magnificent building then the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park. South of the island of Bali. The architect of this place deserves the highest honour possible. I was seriously amazed.

  • This is definitely a no go. This place is over rated. Probably a lot of fake reviews. It has been recently open but is not finished yet. The shows are of poor quality and the sound is awful. The only thing to see are big statues and the most interesting is not even accessible. You can only see it from far or take a shuttle that only works every hour.
