BALI DAY 3 - GARUDA WISNU KENCANA


Garuda Wisnu Kencana is a cultural village for Bali. It had been added as one of the places to visit in our itinerary list, so we just followed.










We first stopped at the amphitheatre to watch a dance performance, which might have some similarities to the Barong Dance that we watched the day before. Even I spotted one of the dancers who looked like the person in the previous dance.

Then we went to this spot where we could see hills that were in the shape of cubes. Situated nearby were the two gigantic statues of Garuda the mystical bird and Wishnu, one of the Hindu gods.












The last section was the museum or gallery where there were exhibits of Balinese culture and religion. All in all, I think this place iss still new and it would be developed further for tourism in the future.
