Having been in Bali when the bombings took place in 2002, I've never been able to return to the site - despite being to Bali 10 times since. This trip I actually went, and was beyond saddened to see it could easily be mistaken as a theme park entrance at night. Bright neon lights are way over the top and take away from what tranquilly and peace the site should hold. I wish I never returned to the site, or maybe gone in broad daylight so the light show didn't take away from my thoughts for those that didn't make it

The ground zero monument is a simple and powerful. But more than the design itself, what struck me was just how crowded the Kuta area is - and how devastating that attack was 20 years ago. We hear a lot about the 202 fatalities but so many more must have been injured.

I will note, however, that Google maps has the incorrect location for the memorial. I submitted a revision to Google Maps to correct the error but who knows if it will be accepted.

Lovely memorial very touching great when the lights came on. I had a lovely tea at ground zero across the road and spoke to people who were there the night of the bombing. Watch out for scammers trying to sell their wares at expensive prices. Glad I made the effort to go from Seminyak to view the memorial

Went there while looked around Kuta. It’s a beautiful memorial. Nice place to sit and just take it in. Very noisy all around as it’s in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Kuta, but that’s what the area is.
If you’re in Bali, it’s just somewhere you should go, even if it’s for 10 minutes.

I would say this monument has a historical value due to the Bali Bombings tragedy that happens in 2002. Reminiscing that time I'm still 4th y.o watching the news on TV and feeling terrified. May their soul rest in peace.

Visit here every time in Bali. Such a tragic event that we pray never happens again. So many innocent lives lost. Everyone from around the world when in Bali go visit and just take a moment to remember.

Second time I have visited this site and is always an emotional place for me.

Being an Australian we just have to go and pay our respect to all those who died from everywhere around the world in this senseless act.

The names of those lost makes the site a bit of a sacred and a somber location.

Thank you to the Indonesian government and the beautiful people of Bali for creating this beautiful memorial site.

I have no idea what is with this monument and attracting very unsavoury characters after dark.

If you go to this monument any time during the day it’s beautiful and a reminder of those who were so sadly lost during the Bali Terror attacks.

However, come to this place at night and you can literally feel the atmosphere change as you walk through. There are many locals standing around this monument whom seem to be up to no good, selling drugs or preying on drunk tourists. It’s an extremely uncomfortable feeling and I would advise people to quite literally walk on the opposite side of the road during the evening.

This unsavoury area could be due to the sky garden nightclub, which is just across the road. But I’m not entirely sure.

12-10-2002 - HORROR !!!
Not one deafening bang! Three bombing occured. I was in the SaRi Club, Jln. Legian Kuta, in May 2002 and was shocked by the news about the bomb attack. I mourned in 2003 and the following years. Every year I pay my respect for the 202 victims by visiting the permanent memorial Ground Zero Monument, dedicated on 12 October 2004. So good there is this amazing monument with the names of the victims to read. And be quiet here in thought!
