Itinerary

Goa Lawah (Bat Cave Temple)

Pura Goa Lawah is considered the most sacred temple in Bali. It is situated in the Pesinggahan village, District of Dawan, Klungkung regency, approximately 49 kilometers from Denpasar. This temple is located on the left side of the road to Padang Bai, or several miles before entering the area of Karangasem.

This temple is called Pura Goa Lawah because it is a large natural cave that is inhabited by thousands of bats. In the Balinese language, the word Lawah means bats. But in terms of religion, the existence of a bat thas nothing to do with what is revered Hindu community in Bali.

Opposite the temple is a beautiful beach with black sand along the bali coastal area.

Taman Ujung (Water Palace)

Taman Ujung "Water Palace" is, with its complete and official designation of Taman Sukasada Ujung,  located in the village of Seraya in Karangasem regency. It is the sister site of Tirta Gangga, also built by the late raja of Karangasem. The complex consists of various large pools and historic structures set against a backdrop of Mount Agung and the eastern shoreline.

The site suffered near devastation by showers of hot ash following the eruption of nearby Mount Agung in 1963, and also weathered an earthquake in 1979. Restoration efforts throughout the decades made way to its current splendour and it continues to appeal to both locals and visitors.
