This remarkable monument stands at the busy intersection of the road as we headed from the airport to Kuta. It is more than a monument to the Balinese and symbolises the legendary Gatotkaca who is responsible for air defence and protection of the Pandawa Kingdom. Gatotkaca is depicted in battle and sacrificing himself to protect the god, Arjuna. Sculpted by Balinese artist, I Wayan Winten, it was erected in 1993.

This impressive statue became a landmark for us during our travels around the island and is wonderful.

You may think you are lost and not sure which way you should go but then you see this and it definitely is a reference point.

Size wise, it is huge, and it would be really interesting to know the full history behind it. Also, it is a pity you just go whistling past in a car rather than having time to explore it but it certainly is impressive.

A beautiful piece of high-qualified art near the Ngurah Rai Airport of Bali.
It is GATOTKACA, a tragic hero figure, half Rakshasa (human-eating monster giant) and one character from the epic Hindu Mahabharata. He sacrifices himself as a victim of the evil, dark Karna and his energy-devouring weapon, the Konta. Karna actually wanted to use this to kill the charismatic and best Pandawa warrior Arjuna. It is believed to lend spiritual protection and safety for all incoming and outgoing, flights.

The first statue that you will see when you land in Bali. Amazing, so big, and really colourful in night. What a wonderful piece of art that is. That is a must stop place to take some photographs.

Absolutely beautiful statue. Makes for a lovely photo if you can get your driver to pull over and let you out to take the pic. Bali has this and many more spectacular statues around the city.

An eye catching landmark that is probably particularly appealing for first time overseas travellers and for many Australians at least, Bali will be the first ever international destination. A very different style of sculpture from what many westerners may be used to, with a rich cultural spiritual meaning that lets you know that you’ve arrived in a foreign country. More than just an art or landscaping feature it’s location at the approach to the airport is deliberate as it is believed to lend safety for all incoming and outgoing flights and passengers . Whether you’re just arriving or you're just leaving Bali, the statue offers a great photo opp for those kicking off or just about to finish, a wonderful holiday amongst fabulous people.

Definitely hits you right as you enter the touristy area from the airport. The design is beautiful and well built. The horses are just beautiful and so shinny!

If your accommodation is in Kuta you will get to see this amazing statue just after you leave the airport. It is a roundabout so you really can’t stop to see if you are sitting on the right side of the car you will get a great view out the window
