Believed to be built during the 11th-century Bali Kingdom as a place for spiritual meditation, Goa Gajah (Elephant Cave) is a marvelous piece of ancient human ingenuity where you'll find many carved imageries inspired by Hindu and Buddhist religions. You'll be surprised that there's an extensive bathing site too in this complex! Inside the shallow cave are three stone idols each wrapped in red, yellow, and black cloths. Step into tranquility as your next stop will take you to the verdant gardens, ponds filled with blooming lotuses, and ancient shrines of Gunung Kawi Sebatu Temple. Before heading to your last destination of the day, a trip to one of the few cleanest villages in the world, Penglipuran, will take you back in time with its well-preserved neighborhood that managed to withstand the forces of modernization. Wrap up the day by buying beautiful handicrafts, batik, or cotton sarongs in Ubud Market.
