GWK (Garuda Wisnu Kencana)

GWK stands for Garuda Wisnu Kencana. Below I will briefly explain the meaning of the name Garuda Wisnu Kencana. So that you can answer why this tourist attraction on the island of Bali is called GWK Bali.

Garuda, the word Garuda comes from Sanskrit which means a bird and its body is like a human. But the head and legs resemble birds and on the back there are wings. Of course the Garuda bird is a mythological bird.

Then, Vishnu is one of the gods in Hinduism who has a role in maintaining and guarding all of God’s creations. While Kencana means Gold.

Because in the tourist area of GWK Bali there is a statue of Lord Vishnu, who is wearing a golden crown, and is riding a Garuda bird with a very large statue size. So this tourist spot in Bali is named Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK).

  • GWK Bali tourist spot is a cultural park which has an area of 240 hectares. The address or location of the GWK Bali cultural park is on Jalan Raya Uluwatu, Ungasan Village, South Kuta, Badung Regency 80364.

    If you come from Ngurah Rai Airport Denpasar, to the location of the GWK Bali tourist spot, you only need 20 minutes of travel. Of course, in a state of smooth highway traffic.

     

From Kuta beach to GWK Bali you will need 45 minutes of travel time with a distance of 15 kilometers.

The following is a brief history of the Garuda Wisnu Kencana tourist spot. The development of the GWK Bali tourist spot was initiated by the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Foundation in 1992. The development of the GWK Bali with the aim of making the GWK Bali tourist spot a landmark of a cultural tourist spot that is well-known to foreign countries.

One of the founders of the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Foundation is I Nyoman Nuarta. Mr. I Nyoman Nuarta is also the drafter and architect of the GWK statue.

To get a suitable location for a big project like the construction of Garuda Wisnu Kencana, is not an easy task.

After finalizing the concept of the project, the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Foundation took two years to find a location for the perfect Garuda Wisnu Kencana statue. Before the construction of GKW Bali, the location on the Ungasan hill was used as a limestone mining site.

The Garuda Wisnu Kencana Foundation appointed I Nyoman Nuarta as the main sculptor for the GWK Bali project. Because I Nyoman Nuarta is one of Indonesia’s best modern sculptors.

Then in 2013, the ownership management of GWK Bali was taken over by PT Alam Sutera Realty Indonesia. PT Alam Sutera Realty Indonesia is a property development company in Indonesia.

Over time, tourist attractions in Bali GWK developed into a place for cultural exhibitions, entertainment events and attractions. As well as being a forum for information and communication for local culture, national culture, regional culture and even international culture.

 

GWK Cultural Park, the name for GWK Bali, now offers a variety of facilities and locations that are ideal and adequate, for various types of public events, private events, both on a small or large scale. In addition, supporting infrastructure facilities so that visitors feel at home are built, such as:

Komang is the best! If you are looking for a guide, driver, photographer, historian, and friend in Bali you have found him! We hired Komang to transport us through Bali while we were here for a couple of weeks. He is very punctual, easy to communicate with, and a very safe driver. He knows all of the hot spots to visit! He taught us so much about the local culture and even led us through offerings at the Pura Tittra water temple, which was so special. He helped us try local foods and shop from the locals. We visited waterfalls, Mt Batur, hot springs, black sand beach, gate of heaven, rice terraces, amazing lunch spots, Batik shop, and so much more! You can fully trust Komang to help make your Bali holiday lovely! He has become our Bali brother and is as close as family. ❤️

I just did a 2 days private/solo tour with Komang and it was awesome. He is a really nice guy, always keen to explain the history/culture behind the places. He also stopped at some places that I liked on the way to the temples. He was always keen to take pictures (really good ones) as well. I definitely recommend him as a tour guide in Bali. Komang, wish u all the best. Cheers from Brazil 🇧🇷

Komang was awesome! He went above and beyond. We only gave him a few places we wanted to go and he brought us places we enjoyed. He kindly explained the culture and the meanings of establishments. We learned a lot and would love to have him again as our driver and guide. If you are looking for someone to show you around, whether touristy places or very local, uncrowded places, I highly recommend Komang. He is the best guide I ever had 👍Let him show you Bali ❤️

He was extremely accommodating and was able to tailor each day based on our needs and where we wanted to visit. I would highly recommend Komang to everyone in the future. Thank you for sharing your culture with us and helping to make our trip to Bali unforgettable! Until next time my friend!!
