Emotional to see so many names. Was worth a look, although we would have liked to have been able to light a candle to pay our respects.

A fitting tribute to the 200+ people who lost their lives here. It is situated on the site of the nightclub where the bombing took place in 2002. Nicely lit up at night.

Located in the centre of Kuta Legian, surrounded by Clubs and stores in very busy street of legian, the monument itself is clean, but the surrounding is not nice during night. Taxi park around the monument, drunk people, noisy motorcycle. The goverment should put more lights that can highlighting the place.

Even today, in July 2014, you will see people pay respects at Ground Zero near Kuta Beach. It's a reminder that even in the heart of the most carefree, fun, and exciting places - tragedy can occur. In the words of legendary U2, "How long must we sing this song?"

A place to remember those tragically taken in the Bali bombings. As a Kiwi our losses were small, compared to our Aussie neighbours. No visit to Bali would have been complete without paying my respects at the memorial. Amidst the hustle and bustle of Kuta, I actually didn't see the memorial when I wandered down the other side of the... More

This is a haunting reminder of how quickly life can be taken away. I was very annoyed to see people standing in front of the monument for photos doing stupid hand signs and poses. I feel some respect no matter what country you are from.

This was a very difficult place to visit. But could not leave without paying my respects to all the beautiful people who lost there lives,and of course all the families that have been affected. I can't say too much but it is a beautiful memorial.
