Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK)

Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK)

It's obvious that this cultural attraction is not yet finished but you can still enjoy the site which it offers. There's a limestone quarry which you will feel that you're in a desert or something. There was a television show currently filming when we were there and I guess this is a popular setting for TV shows as the backdrop of the whole complex is quite beautiful.

There is a very big statue of the Hindu god Wisnu as the population of the island of Bali practices Hinduism. They say that it is the biggest statue of any kind in the whole island. Another statue worth taking pictures is the mythical bird Garuda.

Balinese architecture, traditionally-designed gateways, and ancient sculptures add to Uluwatu Temple's appeal.
