Goa Lawah Temple (Bat Temple)

Goa Lawah Temple (Bat Temple), which features a complex erected around a cave inhabited by hordes of bats, hence the name of this cave the ‘Bat Cave’, is counted among the most significant temples of Bali. In the 11th century, this ancient temple was founded by Mpu Kuturan, one of starting priests who laid the foundation of Hinduism on the island of Bali.

Counted among the first stops on tours to Candidasa and further eastern regions within the Karangasem regency, this ancient landmark, which is situated in the village of Pesinggahan, Dawan district, on the borders of Karangasem and Klungkung regencies, is one of the most visited points of tourist interest in Bali.

As per the locals and the temple community, the cave leads to three various locations, i.e. Tangkid Bangbang, Talibeng, and Mount Agung (Besakih). According to several accounts, ash emerged from Goa Lawah when Mount Agung erupted in 1963 A.D.
