Also known as ‘Goa Gajah’, the Elephant Cave is located near Ubud in Bali and provides a fascinating insight into the island’s religious and cultural heritage. Once having served as an ancient sanctuary, the Elephant Cave has been built into a cliff face, with the entrance portraying a face of a demon that has been skilfully carved into the rock. Visitors enter by stepping through the mouth of the demon and once inside can head along the short tunnel visiting such sites as a statue of Ganesha and an ancient altar. Travellers planning a trip to the island and looking for Bali luxury villas can stay at Alila Villas Uluwatu. Enjoying a unique hillside location overlooking the sea, these exquisite Bali resort villas offer a luxurious getaway on an island paradise.
