Officially opened on January 9, 2021, Taman Dedari or Dedari Park is a tourist spot containing dozens of dynamic angel statues in the Ubud district of Bali, Indonesia. Arranged alongside the Ayung River, there exist almost 50 large and 42 small stone sculptures at the park. The middle-sized angel sculptures range from five to six meters high while four of the large ones can reach up to 10 meters in height.
The word taman means “park” while dedari means “angel,“ and it originates from the legend of Rishi Markandeya who had a vision of an angel descending on the Ayung River. The fact that the foot of the angel statues do not touch the ground also contributes to this heavenly narrative. While sculpting the statues, several famous Balinese artists worked on the project. They paid exceptional attention to detail from head to toe. The clothes are also carved intricately and represent the luxurious royal clothes of Bali. So, by way of these rather dynamic angel statues, the park aims to preserve Balinese culture and customs. Apart from this social and cultural touristic spot, Taman Dedari also offers a restaurant and lodgings.
