Goa Lawah Temple

Pura Goa Lawah (Balinese "Bat Cave Temple") is one of Bali’s most important temples and is distinctive as it is a temple built around a cave opening that is inhabited by nectar bats. This temple was established in the 11th century by Mpu Kuturan, a Hindu Priest, and is located in Pesinggahan in the Dawan region of Bali. One of the features that attracts visitors is the presence of numerous bats in Pura Goa Lawah. The bats in the natural cave will fly past your head, so if this is something that you would be scared by, then it is best to skip this temple. However, if this is something you would like to see, come past at dusk as you will be able to witness the spectacle of the thousands of bats flying out of the caves.
