Facts of Garuda Wisnu Kencana Statue


Location of this GWK (Garuda Wisnu Kencana) statue is located in Kabupten Badung, exactly about 40 kilometers from south Denpasar, Bali.  If the Statue of GWK is completed, it will be the highest statue in the world, higher than the Statue of Liberty in the United States and 20 meters higher than the statue of The Jesus in Brazil.

This statue will serve as a symbol of Balinese culture. Uniquely, this GWK statue can be seen from various angles with a distance of about 20 kilometers. So, the sighting of GWK statue can automatically be seen from Tanah Lot, Sanur, or Kuta area.

Behind the construction of this statue, there must be a figure of a meritorious architect. Who else if not I Nyoman Nuarta. He is the architect who designs the GWK as a whole. I Nyoman Nuarta's expertise can not be doubted, the Indonesian Proclamation Monument in Jakarta and the Jalesveva Jayamahe Monument in Surabaya are the work of I Nyoman Nuarta.
