Garuda Wisnu Kencana, Uluwatu Temple and Jenggala Ceramics Bali
Depart in the morning, we begin our tour with a visit to Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park, a 60ha area of cultural park offers a lavish Indonesian cultural heritage with the monumental Garuda Wisnu Kencana Statue, designed as one of the world’s largest and highest monumental statue in the world. Total height of the statue is 120m, consists of 24 segments and formed with 754 modules made of copper and brass coated patina acid. Proceeding to Uluwatu temple, a famous cliff-hanging temple that clings to the southernmost tip of Bali on the Bukit Peninsula. With sheer cliff faces falling 70m directly onto the pounding surf of the Indian Ocean. Uluwatu Temple dates back to the 11th century and is situated at the Island’s end to protect it from evil spirits.
Made from black coral rock, the tiered shape of the sea temple has a dramatic contrast against its precarious location and creates the most amazing silhouette at sunset. Access to the inner temple is for Hindu worshippers only, and you’ll need to dress in respectful attire when you visit. Another unusual attribute of Uluwatu Temple is its animal inhabitants. The grounds of the temple are home to a troop of mischievous monkeys and warning signs abound to ensure you keep your belongings safe and away from swift simian hands.
But really, this site is all about the view. Jenggala Ceramics Bali will be the last stop, where can find pioneered unique organic design styles, color combinations and glazes prevalent throughout its ceramic tableware collection. Jenggala Ceramic's name is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘jangala’ meaning ‘desert’.
