  1. Goa Gajah
    Goa Gajah or Elephant Cave is located in Bedulu village, Blahbatuh Subdistrict, Gianyar, Bali. It is located approximately 27 km from Denpasar or about 5km from Ubud. Dating back to 11th century, reference to a Lwa Gajah ( Elephant River ) in Bali, the supposed dwelling place of a Buddhist priest, is made in a 14th century Javanese court poem.At the entrance of the cave are six large stone figures, spouting water from pots held at their bellies into two holy pools. The heads and torsos once stood in front of the cave before the bathing pools were excavated by Dutch archeologist, JC  Krijgsman in 1922. To the left of the man made cave is a 1.000 year old statue of the demonic goddess Hariti, who once devoured children but later converted to Buddhism and became their protector. The Balinese call her Men Brayut, the women who had 18 children. Villagers pray here to be blessed with offspring of their own.Just above the cave entrance is a monstrous head with its hands appearing to push apart its fanged gaping mouth. The demonic face with bulging eyes and large earplug, is a Boma figure that frighten away evil. All around it are fantastically carved animals and humans running away in fear.
  1. Kintamani – Gunung Batur and Surroundings
    Aboriginal Balinese known as Bali Age reside on the shore of Bali’s largest freshwater lake, Danau Batur, located at the base of the active Volcano Gunung Batur. On the clear day, the viewpoint at nearby Penelokan offers magnificent panorama. Gunung Batur (Mount Batur) at 1.717 m, the volcano sits in a vast caldera measuring 11 km in diameter and 200 m in depth. Gunung Batur is not the largest or highest volcano in Bali, it is the most active one. It is surrounded by a spectacular caldera, which implies that it was once much larger than now, having blown off its top in an eruption. It has erupted on large scale more than 20 times were recorded between 1824-1994.This active volcano last had a minor eruption in 1994, although it sends out clouds of ashes from time to time. Legend tells of Siwa dividing the mythological Hindu Mount Meru and placing the two halves in Bali as Agung and Batur. It’s best to visit this area before noon when the rolling mist descend. Volcanic activity has made the slopes of Gunung Batur bare and dry, in contrast to the vegetation which covers the slopes of Gunung Abang on the opposite side of Lake Batur.At the foot of Gunung Batur lies Danau Batur, Bali’s largest freshwater lake measuring 7km long and 2 km wide. Its depth has never been measured, but this is the source of the rivers and springs for the entire eastern half of Bali and irrigates most of the island’s fertile rice field.The road uphill from Bangli finally emerges at Gunung Batur’s crater rim at Penelokan, (Looking Place). Ribbons of black lava ripple down the sides of Gunung Batur, while Danau Batur resembles a blue or silver sheet of glass – depending on the time of the day.Follow the main road 4 km northwest along the crater rim to Bali’s second most important temple after Pura Besakih, Pura Ulun Danu Batur, this complex more than 100 shrines sits on a spectacular and peaceful site overlooking the mountain and lake below. The rituals at this temple venerate Ida Betari Dewi Danu, the Goddess of Danau Batur. Who blesses most of Bali with her water.In 1917, Gunung Batur erupted violently and sent our powerful tremors, destroying thousands of homes and temples and claiming more than 1.000 died. Lava engulfed the village of Songan below the volcano but miraculously stopped at the foot of the temple at the northern end of the lake. The people took this as a good omen and continued to worship here.In 1926, another eruption nearly buried the temple. This time, the villagers moved everything up to the crater rim and built the temple where it stands today.
  1. Penelokan
    The place where you will enjoy the buffet lunch while having the fascinating panorama
  1. Pura Besakih
    This is Bali’s largest and most important place of worship, often referred to as the “ Mother Temple “, Pura Besakih began as an ancient terraced mountain sanctuary as early as the 8th century AD. Over time it was enlarged, until it grew to its present size of more than 30 public temples with hundreds of shrines, most of which were added between the 14th and 18th centuries. From the 5th to the 17th centuries, Pura Besakih became the state sanctuary of the Gelgel dynasty. Today, the temple is overseen by the descendants of the Klungkung royal family who are direct heirs of the Gelgel kingdom.In 1917, Pura Besakih was almost leveled by a massive earthquake and was rebuilt. In 1963, however the temple miraculously suffered minimal damage during the eruption of Gunung Agung, even though it is located only 6 km from the crater.Within the complex is the all important Pura Penataran Agun, built on a series of terraces. A long flight of steps lead to an austere Candi Bentar (split gate) made of granite. The setting is magnificent, with peak of Gunung Agung looming overhead and panoramic views of south Bali below. Non-worshipers are not allowed into the temple even if properly dressed, but one can see the inner sanctum through the gates or by walking around the complex and peering over the walls.Inside the main courtyard, which interestingly is not the highest one, is a large Padmasana Tiga (triple lotus shrines) of dark volcanic stone with three high seats on a single base for enthroning three aspects of the supreme God: Siwa, Sadasiwa, Paramasiwa. Many Balinese interpret this shrine as the more familiar Hindu trinity of Brahma, Wisnu, and Siwa.The main festival at Pura Besakih, Betara Turun Kabeh, when God descend together, takes place during the full moon in March or April. Thousands of worshipers come by bus and truck loades from all over Bali during this 11 day event.

  1. Taman Gili In Klungkung
    Klungkung is also known as Semarapura is a district capital and an important trading point on the road to east of Bali.The most important historic site in Klungkung is a pair of pavilions set in an ornamental moat known as Taman Gili, built originally in the early 18th century, Taman Gili (moated garden) is what remains of Klungkung’s royal palace, most of which was destroyed in 1908 during the Dutch conquest. The main features are two raised open meeting halls or Bale with intricately painted ceilings. The paintings have undergone restoration and repainting several times in the last hundred years, but remain fine examples of the wayang style, in which the figures resemble shadow puppets. Bale Kerta Gosa,  (pavilion of Peace and Prosperity) to the right of the main entrance has exquisite examples of painting and architecture in the traditional Klungkung style.The adjacent Bale Kambang, (Floating Pavilion) built in the middle of a pond, was mainly used by the royal family as a place to rest and be entertained. The ceiling painting shows Balinese astrological signs along with the Buddhist tales of the Men Brayut family, with 18 children, and the bodhisattva Sutasoma battling demons.
