Touching memorial for a tragic event. Great to see it is used for a meeting place for many Aussies in Bali

“Great Idea but disrespected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

This is beautiful and such a great memorial but I find it totally disrepectful and disgusting with tourists taking "happy snaps" and smiling, thumbs up, peace signs etc like it a joke or a trip to disney land. people were killed in an act of terrorism.

worth seeing though, paying respects and remember what we lost

“Very Sad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

We arrived at the memorial purely to remember all the lives that were lost. I was a little taken back when I saw crowds of people standing in front of the memorial taking photos & smiling away as though they were taking a photo in front of a 'tourist attraction'. It was a little odd to say the least. Whatever the choice people make as to the reason why they visit the memorial is their own but people it is a remembrance not a place to stand in front and take photos of yourself smiling away as though it means nothing .

Rest In Peace to all that were taken and their families.
