GROUND ZERO

" Paddys bar is a very nice tent with guests between the ages of 18 and 35. Nice to have some drinks and dancing before going to a nightclub. Nice drinks at the happy hour, good dance music (latin, R & B etc), and plenty of room for dancing, there are some dance poles and a stage to perform."

On 12 October 2002, a bomb attack took place on the Indonesian island of Bali, killing 202 people, mostly Australians. The attack was committed by a suicide bomber, who blew himself up in a nightclub (Paddy's Nightclub). After the first explosion, a van filled with 1 tonne of explosives exploded a little further down the street at the Sari Club. This created an 8 meter diameter crater.
202 people were killed in the attacks, including many tourists. At the time of the explosion, mostly Australians were in the area. Among the dead were 4 Dutchmen.

          In 2004 the Bali Bombing Memorial,  also called Ground Zero Monument, was erected in memory of the bombings that took place in Kuta in 2002. It is a tribute to the many victims of the attack. On a stone all the names and nationalities of the 202 people who died during the attack are mentioned.

It is an impressive memorial on Legian Street, with a low fence. You become silent at the thought of the many victims who died here.
The Indonesian government has erected a monument between the old Paddies and the Sari Club location, just across the road. The ground of the memorial is not considered sacred by the Hindus in Bali because it does not contain the dead.
Very impressive to stand on the spot where so many people have been taken from life while enjoying life. You should actually visit this monument for a fee, free of charge and after that you can go through all the streets looking for souvenirs.

 

The three Jeemah Islamiyah terrorists, who had planned and coordinated the bombings - Amrozi, his brother Mukhlas and Imam Samudra - were sentenced to death and executed at the end of 2008. The Jeemah Islamiyah main bomb maker, Dr. Azahari Husin, who oversaw the construction of the huge ton of car bomb and the smaller backpack bomb, was killed in a police raid in 2005.
That same year, Bali was hit again by bomb attacks - this time seafood restaurants on Jimbaran beach and a restaurant in downtown Kuta, killing three suicide bombers and 20 innocent people.

 

From a report:

"In my opinion, the current monument erected by the government is static - it does not allow any deeper involvement with visitors. It stands on a narrow strip of land between the two bombs. It is too hot and exposed during the day so that people cannot spend a real time there. It is now closed to the public at night to prevent possible desecration by drunken tourists."
