About Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park, Bali
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.
