Garuda Wisnu Kencana
18.04.2008 - 26.04.2008 25 °C
Today is full moon, and it's a Sunday. Komang said there will be a lot of people going to the temple for praying. But nothing big, just very subtle one to ask for blessing and things like that.
We went to Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park in Jimbaran. A new Tourist spot to learn about Balinese culture.
It's a park built on a hill, with an Art Gallery, stage for cultural performances, shops, and a Panaromic restorant where you can see the rest of Bali, including the waist of Bali connected to the north.
The weather was overcast and it rained for about 5 minutes.
This is the statue of Lord Wisnu, the preserver and protector of creation.
As far as my lalat sunglasses is concern, I was admiring the statue of Lord Wisnu when some paparazi came and took a shot of me.
The cultural park has beautiful garden. Bali is the land with poor soil, they use a lot of fertilizer to keep those flowers blooming.
The crowd started coming in when we are about to leave. Lots of students and families and tour groups entering the premises.
We found this when coming down the hill, don't know who she was but it surely was beautiful. It's like the artist found a stone in the middle of the garden and started sculpture the girl of his dream.
We left cultural park and heading to Luhur Uluwatu. On the way, we passed by some interesting places.
Komang said the land here was so bad people will give it to you for free. There are no good soil to plant anything. If you have a cow, there's nothing for you to feed the cow since there hardly any grass.
Now, the price of land is booming because of tourism.
Passing by Nusa Dua, we found this HUGE figure of Lord Wisnu.
It was the entrance of Chattugraha. A gate way to dreamland, or also known as the New Kuta. It is a property owned by Tomi Swato. One of the riches man in Indonesia.
