Goa Lawah Temple, Bali

3.1
#21 of 101 in Historic Sites in Bali
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.

Before entering and leaving this temple, you will be beset by vendors of all kinds, who will "offer" you necklaces in exchange for a simple visit to their shops, before reproaching you, if you do not buy anything, for having accepted their gift ... Personally, this temple does not deserve attention...
