Goa Gajah Bali Elephant Cave

(known locally as Goa Gajah) is a historically significant archaeological
site during Budhis and HIndu era in Bali Island, now popular for tourist attraction. Despite its name, you won't
find any pachyderms here, unless you count the stone figure of
Ganesh, a Hindu lord with an elephant's head. Built as a spiritual
place for meditation, Elephant Cave Temple dates as far back as
the 11th century. Built on a hillside where two streams met to
form a river junction, the site was deemed sacred and the temple
was built for prayer and enclosed meditation. The entrance to
the cave depicts a giant menacing face whose wide open mouth forms
the doorway. While there are various animal and forest motifs
depicted by carvings on the outer rock face, the giant face of
the doorway is considered to be that of an elephant.
Tirta Empul Holy Spring
The holy journey will be continued to visit Tirta Empul Temple located at Manukaya Village, Tampaksiring Gianyar Bali, takes about 30 minutes drive from Goa Gajah Elephant Cave. Tirta Empul, Bali, is one of the largest and busiest water temples in Indonesia. The temple was founded in 926 A.D. and is dedicated to Vishnu, who is the Hindu God of water. The name of the temple actually means Tirta = water, Empul = bubbling up in Balinese. Overlooking the temple complex is a presidential palace that was built for Soekarno, the first President of Indonesia, in 1954. The president palace is now used as a place for visiting dignitaries and important guests, close for public. Tirta Empul is open seven days a week, the opening hours for the temple are between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. The temple will be crowded by local upon special holyday in Bali such as full moon.
The Tirta Empul Temple is devided into 3 courtyard such as Jaba, Jaba Tengan and Jeroan. Every courtyard has different function. After paying entrance ticket, follow the way, walk through the large stone Balinese doorway called Candi Bentar, we will arrive soon at Jabe. There is large open space paved underneath with worn stone. The courtyard is enclosed on three sides by large stonewalls. Dominating the right side of the courtyard is a large open-air pavilion ussualy uses for meeting or open stage performance. Back side of open pavilion, there is toilet, changing room and locker to store valuable thing for visitor who want to bathing bath for spiritual cleansing.
The Jaba Tengah is the most famous part of Tirta Empul temple. This section contains the two purification pools. The water in the pools is believed to have magical powers and local Balinese come here to purify themselves under the 30 water spouts that feed the pools. Bathers start in the pool on the left and dip themselves under the first water spout. Once they have cleansed themselves under the first spout they join the next queue. They continue this process until they have been cleansed themselves under each of the 30 waterspouts that fill the two purification pools. This overall process is known as melukat by the locals and is carried out to spiritually purify the mind and soul. It can be done at any place considered holy by the Balinese, although the Tirta Empul (or Holy Spring Temple) is considered the most holy site for this cleansing. Jeroan is the inner sanctum of the temple where many shires dedicated for deities located. Woman during monthly period is not allowed to come in this area.
As you exit Tirta Empul water temple you pass through the final section of the temple, the large koi pool. This section of the temple is walled off on all four sides from the rest of the complex, which gives it a calm and relaxing atmosphere.
