Bali Bombing Monument at Legian-Kuta


One of the places that we visited is the Monument of the Bali bombing in year 2002. It was buit at the bombing site , Paddy Club and Sari club. This is the monument.



This vacant plot of land is on the next to the Monument. Surrounding this plot of vacant land is busy shops. According to our Guide, the owner does not wish to built anything on the land after it was destroyed in the bombing.



This Star shaped design is build as another remembrance of the bombing. The bomb explode there. Killing many people.


The Monument is made of intristically carved stone. A lot of Bali influence in the carving. On the stab of stone are the names of those killed.





Sad to see so many names there. Many of them are locals name too.
There is a small fountain right in front of the names plate and we were told opposite of it was the former Paddy's Club.

Bali is recovering from the incident. It seems that the subject is a taboo(pantang) there. In the course of "forgetting", I think they have also forgotten to clean the fountain. There is a thick layer of green slime there.
