Its located at the Culture Park at the Bukit Peninsula south of Bali. Its quite close to the Uluwatu temple so you can take in both sites if you're there.
A model of the structural make up of the statue.
What would have been the final magnificent result if all had gone to plan.
Do this! - Take the people in this picture and replace it to scale in the picture of the model above this image to truly appreciate how awe inspiring this statue would have been.
Still makes for great photo op.
The surrounding is nicely manicured gardens and you actually get a great view of the sea, Kuta, Jimbaran and the airport in the distance. Good view for sunsets too.
The main courtyard that has been used for concerts. Think the Red Hot Chilli Peppers have played here. The Garuda head overlooks this area and thus makes a great backdrop for events.
Some local wildlife loitering around for food and scraps.
The main restaurant. Not bad for a tourist joint. The fried rice was decent at about RM18 and of course the beers were ice cold. Coupled with the view of Bali peninsula with the sea on both sides made this not a bad experience which I shared with my cab driver Made (meaning second child. Sorry, trying to sound NatGeo)
