This was a very well depicted summary of Ramayana. Initially, you will be provided a pamphlet that consists of what all will be performed during one hour. You should make every effort to read it properly to enjoy the performance to the fullest and to...More

The Kecak dance is a wonderful opportunity to have a glimpse, live and in "operatic" style, of Balinese history, legend and culture. The dance is held at the Pura Dalem and the one-page brochure is very helpful in understanding the performance (it was amusing to...More

What should have been an enjoyable performance was absolutely ruined by idiots taking lousy flash photos. Unless you're interested in seeing how inconsiderate ypur fellow humans can be its not worth seeing until flash photography is banned.

The dance tells the story of king Rama, it’s well performed and a must see if you are there. The show starts at 6 but the ticket sales starts at 5 and costs 100k each ticket
