Saturday, November 9, 2019
Bali has a global reputation as being a place of peace.
This full day excursion is an excellent opportunity experience the rich cultural heritage of Bali, to deepen your relationships after Congress, and to form memories that last a lifetime.
Uluwatu Temple, an architectural marvel situated on the edge of a steep 300 foot rock facing the ocean. This temple has some of the most exquisite architecture in Bali, and was first built in the eleventh century.
There are numerous monkeys on the walkway to the temple, who are delighted to receive food from you. But be sure not to have any loose items on your clothing or body, and hold your bags tightly, because these mischievous monkeys will snatch them and only give them back for ransom (typically peanuts and bananas.)

Garuda Kencana Cultural Park offers a look into lavish Indonesian cultural heritage.
The cultural park is home to the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Statue is the Indonesian Icon of civilization, the number one cultural icon in Bali. The statue is designed to be one of the world's largest and highest monumental statue in the world.
Puja Mandala is a unique landmark in Nusa Dua, serving as a perfect example of how five of Indonesia's major religions live harmoniously side-by-side, despite their different beliefs and practices.
In one single compound, the site has a Hindu Temple, a grand mosque, a Buddhist temple, a Catholic church, and a Protestant church. The complex is open for visitors, but access into each place of worship depends on each of their particular scheduled events, ceremonies, prayer and congregation times.
