Travel is about learning, about crossing boundaries and mastering the fear of strangers, about making the effort to understand other cultures, and thereby empowering yourself. — Fatima Mernissi ✨ #goagajahtemple 🕉🌌
📍 Goa Gajah - The Elephant Cave
Goa Gajah means ‘Elephant Cave’, is an archaeological site on the cool western borders of Bedulu Village, 6 km out of central Ubud. Even though Goa Gajah translates to 'Elephant Cave', you won't find any pachyderms here. Various theories suggest the origin of the name. One is state that the ‘Elephant’ or elephant aspect came from the stone figure inside the cave which is depicted by the Hindu God Ganesh, who is characterized bearing an elephant’s head. After taking the flight of stone steps down to the Goa Gajah temple complex, you often don't need more than an hour to explore and admire the relic-filled courtyard and view the rock-wall carvings. The site contains a central meditational cave, bathing pools and fountains.
