I found this location on Google maps in the middle of Nusa Dua area for a side trip for my parents visit. Lots of stairs so my dad could only enjoy the theatre dancing while mom and I ventured to see the giant Hindu sculptures that seemed to tower over what seems to be an abandoned coral quarry. Interesting for... More

The park is set in an abandoned limestone quarry. It is scenic and pleasant but the BIG attraction is this huge statue of Vishnu that they are building. The body of Vishnu is only a relatively small part of the statue. It will be right up there with the Statue of Liberty etc.

The entrance gives you an idea there is much to see but soon after many empty shops, unfinished parking lot etc etc. In the park itself you can walk around and see everything in 20 min. In the beginning I saw a dance show where everything was told in local language...

Loved walking through this park and was glad that we had a guide to explain the statues and their significance to Bali's culture. First, I was extremely impressed with Wisnu - both the statue and the history of Wisnu. Then I was completely surprised by the Garuda statue which is only partly done. It will be huge! This is a...

Located on Uuwatu area, this is the famous gigantic Bali's cultural park....the entrance ticket is expensive compared for what you get inside. But indeed they need big money to maintain this huge park, so please understand. Inside there's giant statue of Vishnu and his Garuda and several statues else. This park is made from cutting the mountain or hills, how... More

The complex is beautiful with walkways cut through huge pieces of stone. The statue they are building will be larger than the Statue of Liberty. It has an amphitheater for performances, shops and food. Portions of the statue are on display. It's a cool place to hang out for 2 hours. Kind of on the way to ulumatu.

If you wanna watch many authentic show, like barong dance, balinese dance and many more, you should go to this place. There are many show on their schedule in here, but they still need to provide a way for disable person (wheelchair and elderly member) to enjoy this place
