From the top of the cruise ship I noticed an enormous structure by itself on the hill.
We are docked very close to the airport in Bali.
I was told it was the third largest statue in the world.
It is more like the fourth largest if you count the Unity statue in India.
"Garuda Wisnu Kencana statue is the symbol of God Vishnu riding the great Garuda as his trusted companion. The statue is designed to be one of the world’s largest and highest monumental statue in the world. Total height of the statue is 120m, consists of 24 segments and formed with 754 modules made of copper and brass coated patina acid."

Ramayana epic, namely the character Rama who built the Titi Banda Bridge in the middle of the sea with the help of monkey troops that would pick up Sita abducted in Lanka. Titi Banda told about Rama, as the main character who would pick up her wife from the hands of Ravana in Lanka. Rama accompanied by his monkey troops consisting of 18 heads, where five of whom were chief of the monkey. Statue of Rama became the main one in the middle of the building.
