Uluwatu & Kecak Dance – Jimbaran Sea Food Dinner
Pickup time: 16.00pm – 16.15pm at Lobby, (Approx. 5 hours).
We will take you to Uluwatu Temple, a cliff edge temple at 95 meters above sea level, with fantastic view to the Indian Ocean. This is the masterpiece of Nirartha, a holy priest from XVI century, and a great place to watch the sunset over the sea that filled with sailing outriggers (jukung).
Afterwards, we will witness the performance of Monkey (Kechak) Dance, the most unique dance among Balinese dances. It is not accompanied by any instrumental music, but by a male chorus performed by over 70 men. Their hands and torso movements with sudden jerks swaying back and forth illuminated by torchlight, gives an unreal impression.
In the middle of the circular stage, The Ramayana Story will be performed as the Hindu version of Romeo and Juliet but with happy ending. Then we’ll take you to Jimbaran Bay for having seafood dinner.
Review the Object

Instead the background is provided by a chanting ‘choir’ of men who provided the ‘chak-a-chak-a-chak’ noise which distinguishes the dance. Originally this chanting group was known as the kecak dance and they were part of a Sanghyang trance dance.
The Kecak tells the tale of the Ramayana and the quest of Prince Rama to rescue his wife Sita after she had been kidnapped by Rawana, the King of Lanka.
