“Uluwatu Temple & Kecak Dance” Half Day Tour

The Uluwatu Temple is one of Bali’s most spectacular temples. It is built on a cliff top at the edge of a plateau about 75 meters / 250 feet above the waves of the Indian Ocean.

Uluwatu lies at the southern tip of Bali. Dedicated to the spirits of the sea, the famous Uluwatu temple is an architectural wonder in black coral rock, beautifully designed with spectacular views. It is a popular place to enjoy the sunset.

Uluwatu Temple

The Uluwatu Temple is important to the Balinese as it is one of Bali’s directional temples, guarding Bali from evil spirits from the South-West, in which dwell major deities, in Uluwatu’s case; “Bhatara Rudra” – the God of the elements and of cosmic force majeure.

At this temple you will have the chance to watch one of Bali’s most famous dances, the Kecak Dance.

The Kecak dance is unusual because it has no musical accompaniment like many other Indonesian dances do; the rhythm of the dance is produced by the chanting ‘monkey’ chorus.

Kecak Dance

A troupe of over 150 bare-chested men serve as the chorus, making a wondrous cacophony of synchronized “chak-achak-achak” clicking sounds while swaying their bodies and waving their hands. From that chanting noise of “Cak- cak-cak”, then it gave the dance its name Kecak.

The dance is played in five acts and lasts roughly 45 minutes. It is taken from the Hindu epic Ramayana, which tells the story of Prince Rama and his rescue of Princess Sita, who has been kidnapped by the evil King of Lanka, Rahwana and somehow with the help of the white monkey army, Rama rescues his wife and defeats the evil Rahwana.

The Kecak dance is performed every day, at sunset, from 6PM to 7PM. After the Temple visit, enjoy the optional dinner on Jimbaran beach at one of the many Seafood restaurants.
