Traveling in Bali is not always just about the beach. You can also do religious holy temple tours in Bali. The island of a thousand temples, yes this title is very famous for Bali. The island where there are many temples to worship places of Hindus and religious ceremonies, with cultural customs that are still upheld.

Caves in Bali are widely used as a worship place and the location of religious rituals. Therefore, it is also the same with Goa Giri Putri Nusa Penida that there is a sacred temple in it. Goa Giri Putri is one of the largest caves in Nusa Penida. Goa Giri Putri is never empty of visitors. This cave is always filled by Hindus who want to pray and tourists both domestic and foreign who mostly want to know more about the religious rituals performed and the sacred atmosphere in the cave.

Giri Putri cave is very unique because it is quite different from the caves we can find on the island of Bali like Goa Gajah, Goa Lawah and so on. At a glance, the look and shape of this cave is very similar to one of the existing caves in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, precisely cave which is located at Batu Caves tourist spot located at the top of the hill. However, the Giri Putri cave is slightly darker than Batu Caves because the location is completely covered with stalagmites and stalactites, while the cave in Batu Caves has an open spot so that the sunlight can enter into the middle of the cave.

After arriving in the cave, you will be fascinated by its greatness, grandeur and beauty. Stalagmite and stalactite overlays are dimly lit because the conditions are quite dark even in some corners have small lights. Its spiritual nuances can strongly be felt. If you are walking in this cave then occasionally will be seen bats flying above you because in this cave, there are a lot of bats. There are also water channels and even snakes can be found here.

Besides as a place of prayer, Hindus believe that the water that flows from the spring in Goa Giri Putri Temple contains natural strength that can cure the disease.

Visitors must also wear sarongs and scarves when entering the cave and must keep the words and behavior.
