Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Monument is designed and build by Nyoman Nuarta – one of Indonesia’s foremost modern sculptor – made from more than 4000 tons of copper and brass. The statue is picturing Lord Wisnu, as the source of wisdom, riding on the back of the mythical bird Garuda as the manifestation of conscience toward Amerta, the perennial goodness.
This tourism area shall become a center of International events or Culture Park that has been serving the international events, daily Balinese performances, exhibition, restaurants and others. GWK Culture Park is located on Jl. Raya Uluwatu, Jimbaran Village, Badung Regency and Bali Province. It is just 25 minutes away from Denpasar airport or Nusa Dua.
The statue and its pedestal will be surrounded by more than 240 hectares cultural park which was once an abandoned and unproductive limestone quarry.
The cultural park will provide attractions for both local and foreign visitors with supporting facilities such as Lotus Pond, Festival Park, Amphitheater, Street Theater, Exhibition Hall, as well as Jendela Bali The Panoramic Resto and souvenir shop. At present time, the statue of Wisnu, the statue of Garuda, and the hands of Wisnu have been placed temporarily in three different plazas within the park.
