You will need a sarong which can be hired for Rp 5,000, a donation is very much appreciated, Rp 20,000 is considered a good donation. In exchange you will see a very unique temple, and according to locals this temple has great significance for people all over Bali. Climb the stairs and enter the caves via a manhole. Inside the caves there is (electrical) light and a place for meditation. The place for meditation can be entered by tourists, but be sure to take off your shoes and to be douced by holy water by one of the priests (Manku) before entering. The hole place has an awesome atmosphere. Take a bottle for some of the holy water. On public holidays it tends to be very busy with all Balinese who go on pilgrimage here as the place is of great religious and cultural significance. If you are lucky enough to be there on the right day, you might be able to witness a ceremony. The singing vibrates through all of the cave and gives a very mystical vibe to the place. At the end of the cave you can find a small temple which is a buddist temple. This part is next to an exit which gives an amazing view on the hills behind it. Some impressive stalactites and other typical limestone formations can be seen.
