Memorial Wall

Kuta & Legian

This memorial wall reflects the international scope of the 2002 bombings, and people from many countries pay their respects here. Names list the 202 known victims, including 88 Australians and 35 Indonesians. Across the street, the vacant site of the destroyed Sari Club – where the main bomb exploded – is walled off as efforts to build a memorial park edge forward.
