Garuda Wisnu Kencana In Bali

  • By on August 27, 2010 | No Comments

    Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) is a private cultural park on the Bukit Peninsula at the southern end of Bali island. It is devoted to the Hindu god Vishnu and Garuda, the mythical bird who is his companion.

    I fall asleep during the journey to Garuda Wisnu Kencana in Bali, so I got no idea how long you need to travel from Kuta town to reach GWK.

    The entrance fee for Garuda Wisnu Kencana is 50,000 Indonesia Rupiah per person for non-local. The most expensive tourist attraction visit in Bali 🙂

    One of the statue in Garuda Wisnu Kencana, Vishnu (Hindu god) stands in 23 metres high behind me.

    The whole GWK construction began many years back and it’s one of the billions of Rupiah project which wins the objection by the religious authorities that the massive size might disrupt the spiritual balance of Bali island.

    The gigantic Garuda (the mythical bird) in GWK makes me want to fly with Garuda Airlines.

    We were just Hobbits in the eye of the massive Garuda.

    Garuda and Giraffe on the shot. Our visit in Garuda Wisnu Kencana ends after 30 minutes of walk and photo shooting with some sweat.

    The next destination will be Tanah Lot, a Hindu Temple set on the big rock surrounded by the seawater and located in Tabanan Regency. See ya~
