Located in Klungkung Bali, Goa Lawah Temple is a sacred and beautiful area.

The scenery in this temple is very distinctive. As the name suggests, the temple has caves under shady trees and within the walls of my mouth are many hanging bats. 

The sound of bustling bats is endless, morning, noon and night. Instantly dozens, hundreds or even thousands of them fly up. Shortly thereafter, hanging, hanging, jostling on the coral walls of the cave.

This is the uniqueness of Goa Lawah Temple.

Goa Lawah Temple has its own charm, especially with its enchanting natural scenery, a cave under shady trees. In front and at the mouth of the cave there are several shrines that are commonly used as places of worship in Hindu rituals.

This Balinese temple is across the beach and into the hills, where there is a combination of sea and mountain (lingga-yoni). A temple is also built on this beach called Pura Segara. 

Pura Segara is a temple of the surrounding community, most of whose livelihoods are fishermen, to worship God as Bhatara Baruna or the God of the Sea.
