    No worry, the sarong is free of charge but do handle it with care 😀

    Holy Water And Elephant Cave

    The scene of the water pouring down by the water maidens into the holy pool.

    It is believed that in ancient times, the Balinese priests will clean themselves in the holy pool before the meditation in Goa Gajah (Elephant Cave).

    Standing in front of the Goa Gajah (Elephant Cave). Many people view the massive carved face to be a a carved elephant’s head and apparently there are other animal shapes either side of the entrance.

    The cave itself is rather small and pitch dark. Take a leap of faith and you will find the light of your own 😉
