When visit it dont enter with large group because the T shape cave can have less oxygen inside. It is a nice Budha statue place inside from the 17th century. When passing that road. Not to be missed

The cave is lovely and the forest around it is mesmerizing. If you’re lucky you will get to witness some worship.

The place is located not far from Ubud. The entrance fee is very small (around 1 USD) and they provide clothes if you are wearing shorts. The cave and springs are very interesting.

Worth a short visit just to appreciate the architecture. Plus there is an interesting story behind it.

The inside of the temple is very bare, but so old. Definitely worth the visit. Can feel claustrophobic inside- I feel like worth the visit inside regardless. The temple is very old. The Buddah temple down from the main elephant temple is really amazing- it's...More
