This cave is located in Pasinggahan countryside, Dawan sub district, Klungkung Regency, east part of Bali and about 1,5 hours from Denpasar Town. Meanwhile the main road from Klungkung to Amlapura is just in front of the temple. This cave is apposite to the beautiful beach with black sand along the coastal area. Goa Lawah is a cave in which the walls vibrate with thousands of bats, the Bat Cave name comes from the fact that this well-built blessed complex rises right facing a cave where factually thousands of bats hang serenely from its walls, slumbering until the time comes to take off in fight, normally at night, to go look for good.

 

Pursuant to the papyrus of Dwi Jendra Tattwa, the Gua Lawah’s name is Gua Lelawah, the name which is given by Danghyang Nirartha (a priest overspread the Hindu teaching in Bali) when he stop in this place on his Tirtha Yatra trips.

The uniqueness of what can be seen from the existence of heaven Jagat temple is situated in the hamlet Karangsari, Pakraman Suana Village, District of Nusa Penida, Klungkung.

Long time ago, at the time of first human Neolithikum live without norm, without rules, to apply a normative pattern of homo-homini lupus – a single human being “wolves” for another man, then apply the law of the jungle, the strongest is the winner. Each man tried to defend life from natural ferocity, like raging beasts, heavy rain, the brunt of the wind, and sunshine sting. Then they need shelter and reproduction for the survival of offspring. In addition to the use of such cave, the cave is also said to be a place to meditate to invoke a direct gift from the gods.

In general, there is a river cave, bats, snakes, and stalagnit (resembling stone deposits grew from under the cave leading to the cave ceiling) and the stalactite (deposits that resemble rocks, emerging from the wall / ceiling of the cave leading to the cave floor). During its development, human thought patterns a new life with a fixed settlement patterns and support the increasingly sophisticated technology in order to be able to realize a better life. Despite increasingly modern life, but reality shows that prehistoric or cultural traditions in the cave still exist with the function of a growing or changing.

The word “giri” means mountain itself, the mountains or hills, while the “daughter” means a woman. In Hinduism the concept, “princess” in question is the symbolic name for the power of God, has the nature of motherhood or womanhood. So Goa Giri Putri is a space or cavity of a certain size as the dwelling place of God in the manifestation of the power of women (called Hyang Giri Putri), no other is one of the magic of the power of God in His manifestation as Shiva. Here, Giri Princess is the name given to one of the largest cave in the island of Nusa Penida.
