Pura Sad Kahyangan Goa Lawah - Bali

















Bats sighting






Visited during a colourful Balinese funeral day, offerings were ready for to their ancestors. Goa Lawah is built around a cave opening that is inhabited by hordes of bats, and its name translates to 'Bat Cave’. This temple was established in the 11th century, one of early priests who laid the foundations of Hinduism on the island. Beware, not to enter the cave, as a large snake still occupy the cave as well.

Goa Lawah is located in the village of Pesinggahan in Karangasem. This landmark is one of the first stops on tours to Candidasa and further eastern regions within the Karangasem.

The Goa Lawah Temple is a large complex on the north side of the Jalan Raya Goa Lawah main road. It is a stopover for locals who come in with offerings and do short prayers before continuing with their journey. For general visitors, it is an included itinerary on temple tours for photo opportunities together with refreshment breaks across the road on Goa Lawah Beach.
