It is the site of the 2002 Bali bombings. Now it is called Ground Zero.

Ground Zero monument was built to commemorate the first Bali Bombing tragedy and honor the victims. 1 Bali bombings occurred in 2002, exactly on October 12. These events led to loss of life is very much that 202 people died mostly foreign tourists from Australia. This incident occurred in the area Jl.Legian Kuta, Bali, exactly in the Sari Club and Paddy's Cafe.

Actually, the original name of this monument is the "Monument of Five Continents" it is a tourist attraction now where people just come to take pic of the site.

I beleive the site should be converted into a well-kept memorial site or park honoring the lives of those who died.

More should be done for the remembrance of those who died.

When we travel or even get out of bed there is always a chance something out of your control can happen.The first time I visited Bali was 4 months after the first bombing and the 2nd happened 2 weeks after I got home let off at the very restaurant I had been eating in.I felt so sad reading the names ,sisters, family from lots of different countries all with one thing in common..the love of travel,new experiences and culture.I feel this is worthy of a visit to show your respects and feel grateful

Who doesn't know ground zero on Legian? It was on 2002, where the first bomb bali attacked there, killing more than 200 peoples, especially the tourist who enjoyed their night life in there. the ground zero giving the people to always do the great thing ( kindness ) to all the people around the world, now the ground zero is the most favourite tourist destination in bali.
