I don't actually understand why it's even open, except to charge exorbitant fees to see giant disconnected heads and torsos and the dragon that he is supposed to be sitting on, but isn't yet. I did not make the decision to go there and probably would not have gone if given the choice. I get the impression that there hasn't been any improvement at all in recent years.
Highlights: The tourist group taking my picture and the snake railing. And the fire we could see looking towards the ocean.
To the left and the next couple pictures below are pictures/carvings of Garuda.
A miniature of what the statue will purportedly look like in the future.
This is the sign informing women they cannot enter if they are on their periods.
Aka, I didn't realize they were there.
To be continued.
