Apart from the USA, Germany and Mexico, Indonesia also uses an eagle as a symbol on its national emblem. The eagle named Garuda on the National emblem of Indonesia is not an ordinary one. It is a mythical eagle and the vahana (vehicle mount) of one of the three principal deities of Hinduism, Vishnu.
Indonesians established this theme park in the Hinduism-thriving Bali to commemorate Vishnu, the protector of the universe, and his mighty companion eagle in Hindu mythology. The Garuda Wisnu Kencana statue in the park depicting Vishnu riding Garuda is the tallest in the whole of Indonesia. It is even taller than the Statue of Liberty in New York.
Besides offering you a thorough understanding of Hindu culture, the park is also an excellent stage for captivating Balinese dance and traditional music performances. A variety of shops are there to sell delectable local food and interesting souvenirs, such as handicrafts, silverware, sculptures and more. When planning to visit the park, you should check on the official website for the latest programmes to catch one of those epic events like concerts and culinary activities.
