After visiting Dreamland, we continue the program to visit Uluwatu Temple. Ulu in Balinese means heart, Watu means stone. This temple was built in 11th century by javanese priest Empu Kuturan or as known as Empu Raja Kerta. The temple is located in south western tip of peninsula, up to the blue sea cliff approximately 100 meters high, which is the best place to view of the sunset. In the 16th century, another javanese priest Danghyang Nirartha visited this temple and added more building. He retreated to this temple for his final life for attaining Moksa or freedom. We will watch Kecak Dance at Uluwatu Temple. A Kecak performance is very simple. The men’s chorus chants the words Cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak in rhythm repeatedly. For this reason, this dance is called Kecak or Cak dance. The Kecak dance consists of fifty men wearing only a loin-cloth, the upper part of their bodies is left naked. They form rows of circles and in the middle of it is a coconut oil lamp. The Kecak dance is performed for dance-dramas and the story is taken from the Ramayana epic.
