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.

This visit was long anticipated and we were not disappointed the day was great
We had kids aged 2 and 9 and they managed to walk no problem.
Not expensive we felt it was good value and good service.
The golf carts are a big help and assist everybody get around
Good car parking with shuttle bud
Starbucks on site lots of smaller attractions to entertain the kids highly recommended and a 20 min drive from Nusa Dua

Kind of many process of ticketing entires where you can actually delete few and make it more convenient for the customers.

Love the statue, huge and majestic. Worth the sight seeing around. Good thing is since it’s only few days since the opening due to Covid pandemic, only few people are around.

Nothing much to do though rather than walk around the cut rocks that look like solidified rocky lava from the volcanos.

This is waste of time and money. Man made park with no historical significance. Really nothing to see or do here except some giant statue that was recently built.

nothing to see, nowhere to go, restaurants and shops almost all closed.
In addition they have the audacity to ask for an entrance fee!!

The park doesnt change much since the last i visited this place when the statue hasnt finished yet. However, now the statue is finished, i realize that it was really huge. A lot of attractions isnt performed due to covid 19. We also didnt visit the top floor of the statue due to the long queue

Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park a.k.a 'GWK Park', is an impressive tourists attraction to be found in the hills of Uluwatu in beautiful Bali. On the day I visited, there was a long wait for tickets, follwed by a long, uphill walk to see the sights (including the massive statue of the Garuda), but it was all well worth it. There are panoramic views of the countryside and water to be enjoyed here, too. I am glad I made the journey (see my YouTube), to GWK Park.

I expected a bit more than we have seen. Some places of the park are not yet finished. The main huge statue is really stunning but there are no many other things to see. Dancing show was nice but all in all it was not much worth to visit. I think on Bali there are better places to visit.

I spotted this in the distance when we landed. Its a terrific site BUT is not finished and no one advise that you can only visit the base of this monument. I'll go back when completed in the future.

Great photo ops. Great to learn about Culture specially for my teen age children.. Lots of walking, water readily available for purchase. There is a shuttle for those who have trouble walking that takes to main statue (for extra cost).I would definitely recommend a visit to this.

We went to GWK for the first time in 2014 and thought it was just wonderful. Now in 2020 it is almost complete and boy was it fabulous. We decided to go up into the huge statue, the 100,000 rupah each we paid was worth every bit we paid. You cannot take pictures, your belongings and you ust cover your shoes. Our belongings were safely held in an individual locked storage locker, we had an english speaking Balinese Guide, he was brilliant and th view from up that high breath taking.
Very much worth visiting and we will be heading there again.
