Pura Luhur Uluwatu or Pura Uluwatu is a temple located in the village of Pecatu, Kuta District, Badung. The temple is exactly on the southwestern tip of the island of Bali on top of a ridge of steep and high rocks and jutting into the sea is a Sad Kayangan Temple which is believed by Hindus as a buffer of 9 winds. This temple was originally used as a place to worship a holy priest from the 11th century named Empu Kuturan. He lowered the teachings of Desa Adat with all its rules. It is also used to worship the next holy priest, Dang Hyang Nirartha, who came to Bali at the end of 1550 and ended his holy journey with what is called Moksah or Ngeluhur in this place.

Because these monkeys are quite fierce and sometimes they can take valuables that we carry like glasses, bags or hats. Another thing that can be observed in Pura Uluwatu is Kecak Dance and Fire Dance performance. The show begins with the sunset.
Kecak and Fire Dance
Enjoying the sunset while watching a group of Kecak dancers perform in the middle of Uluwatu Temple area is the most exciting experience during your vacation in Bali. Kecak dance is a dance that was invented and created by Balinese artists namely Wayan Limbak and a friend from Germany. At the beginning of its emergence this type of dance was created by accidentally taken from a traditional dance worship known as Shangyang. Sanghyang is a type of traditional Balinese dance performed in religious ceremonies such as rejecting reinforcements as well as expelling an outbreak of disease.
From a Sanghyang staging then Wayan Limbak with Walter Spies innovate to create a dance movement as one of their love of the culture and art of Bali. One type of dance art is presented by the dancers who sit around and say the word “cak-cak-cak” simultaneously, because this dance is also named as “kecak dance”. Hand movement presented in the show actually tells a Ramayana story that is on the event of Goddess Shinta abducted by Ravana. Until the end of the show usually this dance presents the story of the liberation of Goddess Sintha from the hands of Ravana.
In order to support the story presented in the traditional Balinese dance performance there should also be some characters who play the main role as Hanoman, Sugriwa, Dewi Shinta, Rhama, and Rahwana. In the 70s Wayang Limbak worked hard to promote and introduce kecak dance to foreign countries. In addition to introducing the uniqueness in this dance performances of course the origin of this arts come up in the international world which then attracts foreign tourists to visit Bali. In its development the dance performances that also tell the story of this puppet is played by an infinite number of men. There are times when presented by dozens of people but in certain events there are also shown massively by thousands of dancers.
The development of kecak dance from the beginning of its creation up to now it can be said quite proud. In addition to the enthusiasm of the people of Bali to the art of Wayan Limbak claimed that the tourists who visit Bali are also very interested in watching a performance of this art movement. No wonder the local government makes kecak dance as one of the icon of local art and culture. The Monkey Dance is also given as a traditional Balinese dance design on this one. This is given because one scene in the dance performances using fire property as well as the main character who acts as a monkey / Hanuman.
