TheJohnsons Videos by TheJohnsons Garuda Wisnu Kencana Statue or GWK in Bali

It took 28 years to build this massive statue of the Hindu god Vishnu riding a mythical bird. It is the tallest statue in Indonesia, the world’s tallest statue of a Hindu deity, and if you include its massive base. If you include the huge base on which the statue stands, its total height of 397 feet (121 meters) ranks it as the fourth tallest statue in the world. The entire structure was built from 754 modules, pieced together to form a gargantuan statue weighing more than 3,000 tons, with a steel frame covered in a copper and brass skin. On top of Vishnu’s head sits a 3.5-ton crown covered with gold-plated mosaics. This is set in an area of ​​ 60 hectares, and houses some other very large statues, such as the Garuda's head, and Vishnu and the dancing Garuda. I Hope you enjoy this journey round the park with me!
