Uluwatu Temple & Kecak Dance

Explore the 1000-year-old Uluwatu Temple, see the sunset from a clifftop perspective, enjoy Balinese music and traditional dance, and educate yourself about the epic of the Ramayana through the Kecak Fire Dance.

The Uluwatu Temple, a Siva-Rudra worshipping site, offers a unique cultural experience with a traditional Hindu dance display, Kecak, performed by Balinese dancers. The Kecak Fire Dance, one of the top tourist attractions in Bali, takes place in a clifftop amphitheatre near Uluwatu Temple. Rather than gamelan instruments, the concert uses tiered concrete seats, fire, and human vocals. It is often included in Uluwatu Temple trips and serves as the last highlight. 

The Kecak Fire Dance, a prominent cultural event, starts after twilight with a group of male dancers singing fast-paced choruses from the Ramayana epic. The Kecak dance tells the narrative of the Ramayana, including Prince Rama’s heroics with the wanaras (monkey soldiers) in rescuing Princess Sita, his wife, who had been abducted by Rahwana (Ravana). The prelude opens with a series of scenes, each with extravagant costumes and tempos that retell the story. The spectacle concludes with fire torches blazing across the sky. Uluwatu, famous for its grey long-tailed macaques, is inhabited by these pocket pickers.
