Pura Goa Lawah, Bali

3.7
#12 of 43 in Nature in Bali
Cave Religious Site
Visit Pura Goa Lawah 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. By using our Padangbai itinerary builder, you can arrange your visit to Pura Goa Lawah and other attractions in Padangbai.

  • Nice temple, but not too large. You can finish in 15min. If you are close by, then stop by! Entrance fee is IDR 10000.
  • Made kanti is the best driver in bali and good inggris and good informasion for all of bali and good drive and made now everythink
  • The place is not too big, there was a small cave with full of small bats, but we cannot enter.. the place was not clean, but nice experience..
  • Boys and girls must wear a Sarong. There are vendors selling them in the parking lot. It's best to come prepared. I was shocked at the bat cave. I truly thought there were bats flying around then realized there were hundreds just hanging there! Make sure you tell your children or they may scream!
  • Goa Lawah or Bat cave temple. Hindu's temple. A must visit place in Bali when holiday.
