Garuda Wisnu Kencana

Park Bali, Bali

Devoted to Vishnu and his mount Garuda Garuda Wisnu Kencana

Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park (Indonesian: Taman Budaya Garuda Wisnu Kencana) or GWK, is a cultural park located at Ungasan, Badung in the island of Bali, Indonesia about 10–15 minutes driving from Ngurah Rai International Airport. It is devoted to the Hindu God Vishnu, and his mount, Garuda, the mythical bird who became his companion. Planned to be established of a landmark or mascot of Bali, construction of the giant statue of Lord Vishnu who was riding his mount Garuda, as high as 120 meters is currently going on.

The park has a land area of about 60 hectares and located at an altitude of 146 meters above ground level or 263 meters above sea level. In the area there is also a Statue of Garuda which is directly behind the Plaza Wisnu is Garuda Plaza where the statue as high as 18 meters Garuda placed temporarily. At this moment, Garuda Plaza becomes the focal point of a large corridor of carved limestone pillars covering over 4000 square meters of open space i.e. Lotus Pond. The colossal limestone columns and monumental sculptures of Lotus Pond Garuda make a very exotic space. With a space capacity capable of accommodating up to 7000 people, Lotus Pond has earned a good reputation as the perfect venue for holding major events and international events. There is also a statue of Vishnu's hand which is part of the statue of Lord Vishnu. This is one step closer to completing the complete Garuda Wisnu Kencana statue. This work is placed temporarily in the area of Tirta Agung.
