Goa Lawah

Nine kilometer from Klungkung is “Goa Lawah” or Bath cave. The roof is covered with thousands of bats and its entrance is guarded by a temple believed to be founded by a Sage nine centuries ago.

Besakih

Known as the “Mother Temple of Bali, the sanctuary of Besakih on the slopes of Mt. Agung is the biggest and holiest of all Balinese temples. Over a thousand years old, steps ascend through split gates to the main courtyard where the trinity shrines are wrapped in cloth and decorated with flower offerings. Around the three main templates dedicated to the Trinity Shiva, Brahma and Wisnu are separate sanctuaries belonging to different regencies and caste groups

To the Balinese; a visit to the sanctuaries is a special pilgrimage. Each has its own anniversary celebration or “Odalan”. The sight of the temple against the back ground of the mountain is impressive and during festivals, colored banners add a touch of gaiety.
