If you want to watch Kecak dance, Uluwatu temple is a best place.

 

The dance tell the story of Bali which is about Rama who wants to rescue his beloved wife Sita from Rahvana. There are around fifty men wearing loin- cloth surround the fire in the center. There is no musical instruments used in kecak performance, instead dancers shout out “kecak” chants rhythmically and repetitively. For this reason, they are called the Kecak or Car dance. The dance performed is related to holy ritual and the dancers are protected by holy spirit from the temple.

 

Below is the Kecak dance story which is delivered to me at the beginning of the performance.

 

Rama, a wise prince and the legal heir of the throne of Ayodha, is exiled from the his father Dasarata’s realm.

 

He is accompanied  by his beautiful wife Sita and his

loyal younger brother Laksamana.

While crossing the enchanted forest of Dandaka, the demon king Rahwana spots Sita and lusts after her. Rahwana's deputy Marica transforms himself into a golden deer to distract Rama and Laksamana.

Rahwana then transforms into an old man to fool Sita into stepping away from a magic circle of protection set by Laksamana - thus fooled, Sita is spirited away to Rahwana's realm of Alengka.

Rama and Laksamana discover the deception too late; lost in the forest, they encounter the monkey king Hanoman, who swears his allegiance and goes off in search of Sita.
