Bali Memorial Nears Completion

Bali Bombing Memorial Undergoing Finishing Touches from Builders.

(10/4/2004) The Bali Memorial, located mid-way between the sites of the former Sari Club and Paddy's Bar - both destroyed by the terrorist bombing of October 12, 2002, are receiving their finishing touches from builders busy to meet an October 5, 2004 deadline for completion.

The final monument will incorporate a list of the names of all the 202 victims who lost their lives in the twin blasts, the flags from each nation whose nationals were represented among the victims, and a fountain.

Supplemental work is planned to upgrade the pedestrian areas surrounding the monuments and the vacant lots where the former Bali nights spots once stood.

While no formal inauguration of the memorial is planned, local religious rights seeking the Almighty's blessing on the project are scheduled to be performed by representatives of the Buddhist and Hindu faiths on Friday, October 8, 2004.
