If you scour the seabed from the Java Sea eastward, once arriving in the waters to the north of Bali mainland, you will come across a very deep giant bowl, which is part of the so-called ancient sea. It has become the final destination for KRI Nanggala-402 and its 53 crew.

While the Java Sea has an average depth of 20 to 40 meters, the Bali seafloor is characterized by steep elevation with a depth of more than 1,000 meters and the more eastward, the deeper. In fact, the waters to the north of Bali Island is not the deepest sea in Indonesia, but it has a strong and turbulent eddy current.
