About Goa Gajah

The Elephant Cave, popularly known as Goa Gajah, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located on the island near Ubud in Indonesia. These 9th-century caves served as a sanctuary and is believed to have been built to ward off evil spirits. Elephant Cave is an archeological site of significant historical value that makes it a unique place to visit. The sanctuary comprises of a relic-filled courtyard and views the rock-wall carvings, a primary meditational cave, bathing pools, and fountains. Different structures uncover Hindu impacts dating back to the 10th-century, and a few relics highlight components of Buddhism dating before the 8th-century. The cave is shallow and inside are three stone symbols each wrapped in red, yellow and dark fabrics. A few spaces show where monks once sat. The northern side of the compound is predominantly Buddhist while south over the stream is for Shivaite.
