“Nice monument”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

It's a good landmark and definitely a 'must go' spots to take some pictures. However, I would suggest to Bali government to maintain the cleanliness of the surrounding. One more thing, it will be great if the small fountain pond in the middle always works.

“moving tribute to those lost”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Coming to Ground Zero - where the Bali Bombings are memorialised - is a moving experience. Reading the names of those lost and noting their country of origin drives home the reality that terrorism is an attack on all freedom loving people of every faith, colour, creed and nationality. One cannot imagine the hell of that event when you see how close all the building are to each other. Hell on earth - but the victims are remembered in a respectful honourable and beautiful way. Thank you Bali!

“Somber place of rememberance”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Being a regular traveller to Bali it's impossible not to visit this site each and every time.I was there in 2002,albeit in South a Kuta,and asleep when that event took place.The chaos and mayhem,loss of life and devastation is just unimaginable.The memorial is in Legiann Street,Legian.this is without doubt the busiest street in all of Bali.Days full of shoppers.nights full of revellers.Still,this memorial,containing the names of all those killed,stands in reverence.Its quite moving to just stand ther and reflect on just how quickly life can change and also how terrorism treats life so cheaply.The affect on the Balinese people was felt by way of loss of income from tourists not visiting was saddening.Just as things were returning to normal the 2005 bomb exploded in Kuta square.was there again and witnessed the Hindu priest doing thier daily cleansing of the bomb site.Then the building was scuttled .Do show respect here when visiting.

“Emotional”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Doesn't matter how many times you pass it,or stop look and think the raw emotion is always there. God Bless you all and please remember the Balinese who gave their lives with no recognition.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

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.
