Goa Lawah Temple, Padangbai

#19 of 112 in Historic Sites in Bali
Cave · Religious Site
Visit Goa Lawah Temple for a chance to see a quivering mass of leathery bats covering the cave's ceiling and walls. Several Hindu shrines and pagodas surround the cave's entrance, built in the typical many-tiered Balinese style. In addition to the colony of fruit bats, locals believe this cave also houses the mythical serpent Naga Basuki. Although you are unlikely to catch a glimpse of him, you may spot a large python feeding on the fruit bats.
