This is V’s and my first trip to Garuda Wisnu Kencana, a cultural park at the southern end of Bali between Uluwatu and Nusa Dua. The place is devoted to the Hindu god Wisnu/Vishnu and his mount and companion, the mythical bird Garuda. Apparently the place is a prestigious venue for pre-wedding photography, weddings, and other events, but personally the only thing I find noteworthy in the place is the 23-metre bust of Wisnu pictured here, which for some reason, looks incomplete. We also saw the Kecak performance, but it paled in comparison to the one displayed in Uluwatu. If you’ve been there yourself, I’d love to hear your thoughts on what else to see or do here, but otherwise I’d give this place a miss.
