Elephant Cave Ubud, Ubud

2.6
#3 of 7 in Parks in Ubud
Legend has it that the stunning rock facade at Elephant Cave Ubud was created by a giant from Balinese mythology. Historians actually know very little about the ancient cave's origins, except that it probably dates back to the 11th century. Despite its misleading name, no elephants live inside this cavern. A place built for meditation, the cave features a facade depicting a group of frightening creatures and demons--the main figure above the entrance somewhat resembles an elephant, which explains the cave's name. Walk through the menacing mouth of this creature to see a statue representing Ganesha, an elephant-headed god.

  • If you have time, you can visit this temple, but it continues to be one more, perhaps, than the temple, worth the surrounding woods.

Where to stay in Ubud

Sayan Valley offers luxury accommodations atmospherically designed to fit the look and feel of the natural surroundings, with infinity pools, wooden lodges, and yoga-ready verandas aplenty. Less expensive alternatives are also available, albeit with fewer amenities and a little less isolation. If you wish to stay in Ubud itself, look for charming and inexpensive rooms rented by local families (with many including breakfast in the cost), or consider the pricier single-occupancy apartments.
