With a future plan of ±120-meter tall and 64-meter width statue of Garuda Wisnu as its main attraction, GWK Cultural Park boasts one of the largest artistic masterpiece and most astonishing works of arts ever created in Indonesia’s art history, which reflects the strong values of one of Indonesia’s inherited local cultures. #BePartOfGWKHistory #IconOfCivilization

100k Rupiah per person. We went there in the early afternoon, when there weren't any performances, so all we saw was a couple of large statues and many souvenir shops. Very tidy grounds, well-manicured, but again, not much there other than the shops. Not worth...More

You can go there by cab/taxi for sure, but to leave, I didn't see taxi waiting in GWK, maybe you can rent a car for half or fullday and you can go anywhere else from GWK, thats what I did.
