GWK is one of tourist places and destination in Bali, it is for artistic performances, exhibitions, and conferences as well as for sightseeing and relaxation. Dominating the park is Wisnu , a bust of a Hindu deity constructed from giants slabs of copper and brass. Representing the divine force responsible for the protection of the universe, the 22 meter Wisnu figure is a modern rendering of an ancient cultural tradition. The companion piece, Garuda , represent the giant bird which transports Wisnu, a symbol of both freedom and selfless devotion.
