About
Rising from the rugged hills of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula, the magnificent Garuda Wisnu Kencana statue stands watch over the island. The towering statue is Bali’s most iconic landmark and depicts the Hindu God Wisnu, atop his mount, the mythical eagle, Garuda. Soaring to a height of over 120 meters, this is one of the tallest monumental statues in the world, higher than both the Statue of Liberty and Christ the Redeemer. The statue makes a stunning central feature of GWK Cultural Park, a fascinating 60 hectare cultural park that draws visitors from around the globe and provides a tantalizing glimpse into Bali’s fascinating heritage through intriguing cultural performances, legendary folklore tales, immense sculptures and dramatic cinematic presentation. Enjoy panoramic island views as you explore the park on foot or by Segway. Indulge in Indonesian heritage cuisine, immerse yourself in a land steeped in mythology, or plan your next big event in one of GWK’s epic venues.

If you have a lot of free time and nothing to do.... then maybe. Nothing really historical about it, few statues in the park. Ticket entrance for the park cost 125k, golf car to big status cost 40k (you could if you are not in a rush, about 1.5km) and separate entrance to 'observation tower' in the big statue cost 250k. Kecak dance was nice and for the rest in the park they had some restaurants/cafes

The location is pricey. The statue is on top of a hill, surrounded by gorgeous limestone hills, and you'll be taken there by golf cart after entering. The staff is well-organized and accommodating. The history of Wisnu and Garuda's narrative are explained on the ground floor.

The park itself is nice enough and the statue is huge - a cool sight to see up close. However, I'm not sure the entrance fee is justified. We paid a bit more to get the food package at the restaurant. Do NOT do this. The restaurant service is slow and terrible, and the food is not great either. If you're willing to pay the entrance fee, stick to exploring the park only then eat elsewhere.

The place is expansive. The staff are organized and accommodating. Upon entry you will be taken by golf cart to the statue on top of the hill. The limestone hills are beautiful. Upon seeing the statue complexit is iconic. The ground floor explains the history of the construction and also the storyline of the mythical Wisnu and Garuda. We were not able to go up the top because it will take another 2 hours at least of sightseeing and We lack the time to explore. At the exit there are shops to see.

There is a statue of Bisnu but not really worth the effort. Expensive for what it is. Avoid it unless you are struggling for option which shouldn’t be the case.

visited the cultural park last month,before i dont think GWK worth a visit.but after visited it,i changed my mind.it is beyond my expectation. there are two photo studios at the park.,you can rent balinese costume and the photographer will take pics of you,i went to asana ,one of the studio,the photograher is professional.there is a souvenirs shop inside the park,indidva shopping here,and bought some keychain and magnets.the keychains and magnets are mie goreng,sorso tea box,but miniature version.i think they are cute.there are many traditional performance held at a theatre.i watched kecak dance there,but i want to take pics around the park,so i didn't finishe the show.and after taking pics of two statues in the park,i meant wisnu and garuda,i found no time to go to the last statue—patung garuda wisnu kencana,the tallest one,cuz very late,and i have to have dinner at jendala restaurant if not they will closed.so if you love to take photos,i suggest you come earlier.i will come again.

long waiting times, for shuttles over shuttles, that take you from the parking to the ticket office, from the ticket office to the statue, and from the statue only half way back !
all in all about 450,000 Rp, roughly 30 USD, to see a huge NEW statue, eat bad food in a loud and useless festival park, and wait long time for each shuttle.
a no-no for me, not sure what others have identified as cultural of this experience, it is a tourist trap and ripp off.

You know when you are sitting on the beach and you spy the Giant Garuda on the hill.I didnt realise that it was a cultural Park until we decided to visit there one day.OK you pay your 5000rph to catch the shuttle up to the gates,You then pay a base fee of 125000rph per person to enter the park.If you want the shuttle to take you to the top and back you pay a bit extra but we just walked 6 mins up the road.Although it was very hot.You walk up to the statue through shops and eateries.Lots of different statues to take photos of and a traditional Balinese dance show which was excellent.They have big plans for this place with waterfalls and gardens.Look forward to seeing the finished product but it was a pleasant surprise and took us a couple of hours to complete.Small museum free to enter but not much there,You can also dress in traditional dress and have photos taken for a nominal fee.Too hot to do it when we were there but might do it next time.Well worth the visit

We wanted a cultural experience- to learn more about Balinese culture. This tour doesn’t do that but it was insightful into a particular Hindu story or Garuda and Vishnu. We opted for the guided tour and it was worth the extra $16. Our guide was informative, pleasant and accomodating. We toured with another couple and it was lovely getting to know people from India.

When one travels to the US - you must visit the world-famous Statue of Liberty.
Yet the Garuda at the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park is so much more impressive.
Visible whenever you head south into the Nusa Dua area, the statue of the Garuda carrying Wishnu is a must-see. Though this attraction will soon become part of a theme park experience, as it is now, it is worth a see.
Largely unpromoted, as yet, this giant statue is a must visit.
