In Balinese language, Ulu means ‘head’ and watu means ‘stone,’ so ‘Uluwatu’ means ‘the stony ends of Bali.’ This temple was built in the 11th century by a Javanese high priest named Empu Kuturan. Perched in the south-western tip of a peninsula, up the blue sea cliff approximately 100 meters high, it is one of the best spots to watch sunset in Bali. In the 16th century, another Javanese high priest, Danghyang Nirartha visited this temple. He is believed to attain Moksha or ‘ultimate freedom’ at this temple. Admission ticket: IDR 75,000/person.
A Kecak performance is very simple. The men’s chorus chants the words Cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak in a melodious rhythm, over and over again. For this reason, they are called the Kecak or Cak dance. The Kecak dance consists of about fifty men wearing only a loin-cloth and their upper bodies are left bare. They form concentric circles, encircling a coconut oil lamp. The Kecak dance is performed for a dance drama and the story is taken from the Ramayana epic. Admission ticket: IDR 100,000/person.
