Goa Gajah, also called Elephant Cave, is located east of Peliatan near Ubud in central Bali. Goa Gajah dates from the 11th century and was discovered in 1922.
The entrance to the cave is a kind of monstrous creature with wide open mouth. The cave has a 13 meters long corridor that opens onto a T-junction. At the end of the left corridor is a statue (1 m high) with four arms of Ganesha (the Hindu god with an elephant). In the other three are going linga, the manifestations of Shiva proposals. Just before the entrance is a statue of the Buddhist goddess Hariti.
Opposite the cave is a fountain with six female statues. It was only in 1954 uncovered by the archaeologist JC Warrior. Along the cave runs the River Petanu.
After visiting the cave, we went to a supermarket, here we have bought the stuff I needed for Sari Yanti Kimmy and cooking. It was one promise and I was wondering how she would find my chicken gorgonzola. We have a great meal and a great evening. a good end of the second day.
