Apparently this place is normally packed out, but thanks to Covid I was the only visitor on the day I went. An extensive site with various waterfalls, temples and paths. Beautiful just for a picturesque walk. I would have liked a bit more information about what I was looking at. They have guides but I also like to go at my own pace and get lost in my thoughts so I didn’t opt for that. Lots of steps and water so make sure you’ve got your non slip shoes on! Good for photos

Small Temple but worth the visit! The carvings are truly impressive! There's a Hindu and Buddhist temple on site!

This place was fenomenal, hard to explain about the cave and story, believe or not. When you come to bali dont forget to visit this place.

As the only tourists here during our visit, we had a fabulous experience enhanced by a guide within the temple. This is truly a special place in Balinese history and through our guide we were able to step right back in time and imagine what would have been happening years before. We enjoyed a walk around the grounds but have to say, we were thankful all the shops inside the grounds were closed. This part of the walk would have been a nightmare and would have ruined the experience. Please keep the shops/stalls out of this area completely.....

This was the second stop for us on a private day tour with a Bali Res Centre driver. Goa Gajah, also known as the Elephant Cave Temple, was formed in the 9th century. The exact origins of the cave are uncertain, however, it is believed to have been built as a sanctuary for spiritual meditation. Both my brother and I were taken aback by the site, not only by the intricacies of the carvings, but the wonder at how the site was carved by hand, and how serene the environment was.
