  • good to take snaps, The ambience is really nice. lot of areas to move around. well maintained. statues are made of bronze. better to take umbrella and sun glasses 
  • The park has 2 great bronze statues - the most prominent is the 25 metre statue of the bust of the Balinese Hindu god Vishnu (Wisnu). The other is a giant Garuda, a mythical humanoid, bird-like creatu...  more »
  • You pay as a foreigner 10000 Rp. There are beautiful images but it seems still for 3/4. It was pretty messy, just a wedding/party. Have fun dance performance. If it is off it will probably be more park entrance fee.

  • realy disapointed with this place. The management is getting worst.. today as a local guide I taken a group of 39 person to this place and here's my review. 1. Ticket price is too expensive. it is 70k now for domestic tourist.. its far to expensive for seeing an unfinished statue. 2. It is raining heavily and my group is told to walk to the parking lot about 400meters away againts the rain. 3. I asked the security guard if there's any chance for the bus to pick up us and he said in balineese "yen gelem mare ade jemputan yen tamune seger ujan bedik baang mejalan" whick is roughly translated " if the visitor is sick than they can get the shuttle. If not they can just walk through the rain". That is quite harsh words in hospitality industry. Well he is right i have a well and fine guest with me but my guest will be sick if they walk through the rain. For me GWK management should upgrade their facility at least consider to give a shuttle to the guest like they do a few month a go. Now to this day the ticket price is IDR.70K. For the local and IDR.100K for the foreigner for an unfinished statue. I wonder how much they sell the ticket if the statue is finished.. 500K or may be more??
  • This place is far from finished (as of 2016), you pay 100k a person (plus parking) to see pieces of a future 120m-tall monument. It all is basically a construction site, except for a comparatively small part which includes the amphitheater where traditional dance shows take place hourly. But of course all the samey souvenir shops and fast food places are up and running. On the plus side the dance show was interesting. You decide if this is a good value proposition.
  • Amazing to see Garuda wishnu. You will seem different experience when you visit there. The status are huge and the garden was amazing. The garden filled with great and enjoyable sleep on the garden. Happy recommended place.
  • Many people say that GWK only park with statues unfinished, but they forget we can also enjoy dance performances, even Kecak performed here, although no better than Kecak performances at Uluwatu, but in my opinion worth visiting GWK
  • vishnu and garuda sculpture very nice price little bit expensive they going to build new vishnu statue tallest in bali
