Goa Gajah and Tampak Siring




Goa Gajah


Goa Gajah dates back to the 11th century and is believed to have been built as a monastery. Carvings on the wall show a demon head over the entrance, flanked by two statues. The cave contains a statue of Ganesha. Excavations have uncovered a bathing place with six statues of nymphs holding water-spouts.


Tampak Siring


The temple of Pura Tirta Empul is built around the sacred spring at Tampak Siring. Over 1000 years old, the temple and its two bathing places have been used by the people for good health and prosperity because of the spring water’s curative powers. Regular ceremonies are held for purification. Specialties of the area are bone and ivory carvings and seashell ornament.
