Visit the highly venerated Uluwatu temple, one of the oldest temples in Bali,built on the most southern cliffs facing the Indian Ocean. Free living and curious monkeys will be your new friends for the time of the temple visit. The Stunning sunset will be the backdrop for the Kecak Dance performance near the temple, a memorable climax for this evening, a spectacular and dramatic dance performance with up to 100 dancers interpreting a part of the Ramayana story, also known as the Ramayana Monkey Chant. The dancers wear checked cloth around their waists, percussively chanting “cak” and throwing up their arms, depicting a battle from the Ramayana epic where the monkey-like Vanara helped Prince Rama fight the evil King Rahwana. Kecak was originally a trance ritual accompanied by a male chorus. German painter and musician Walter Spies became deeply interested in the ritual while living in Bali about 80 years ago and recreated it into a drama, based on the Hindu Ramayana epic and including traditional Balinese dance movements.
