Kerobokan Jail, Bali Overview

Located in Kerobokan, a part of Badung Regency in Bali, the renowned Kerobokan Jail is an eccentric place to visit. Also referred to as the Hotel K, the famous prison was first built in the year 1979 and was designed with an occupant capacity of three hundred inmates. After various renovations, Kerobokan Prison, at present, has an occupant capacity of over a thousand and four hundred inmates, brought in from several places of the world.

As per a survey, about ninety per cent of the inmates belong to the island country of Indonesia itself, and about eighty per cent of them have been charged with crimes related to narcotics. The notorious Kerobokan Prison is open to tourists who line up to meet the inmates and most of the times, even interact with them.

A short visit to this place contributes a great deal in giving a much-needed sombre break to the inmates while at the same time making the visitors realize how fortunate they are to be on the other side of the four walls.
