Slightly difficult to climb stairs to temple in a tight Sarong and a tight squeeze entrance but well worth it.. the cave is a little spooky but really awesome.
And there was an option to receive a blessing towards the exit of the cave that I really enjoyed also.
I would recommend 👍☺️

great experience , must do when on nusa penida , a bit small entrance but inside is huge hall with few residence bats ( harmless i think )
the monks do their spiritual ceremony on you if you want to join or you can watch and take photos and you feel welcomed
recommend to attend or participate the last ceremony before the exit

Unusual temple on east coast of Nusa Penida. Small charge to park, hire sarongs and enter temple. Guide takes you through narrow entry point into the large spacious cave system where they have various temples. Some bats flying about. You walk through the temples and exit on the opposite side of the mountain and walk back round a path to the carpark.
Takes about half an hour.

You have to make some efforts to enter the temple (climb 110+ steps, then squeeze your body into the narrow hole, and scroll a few meters deeper into the cave). And spend some money - rent a sarong and pay the entrance fee.

The entrance area is commercialized and very little spiritual is there. The temple people are smoking, watching videos on their phones...

The atmosphere inside is better. But when you reach the end of the cave, where the Buddhist temple (altar) is located, the things are changed. The priest is attending the needs of devotees, the energy is peaceful, healing, and loving.

I am glad that we visited the Pura Goa Giri Putri temple.

Such a unique place. A temple in a cave. You have to rent a sarong, cross the street, and walk up a set of stairs. There, you pay admission to enter the cave and get a cup of water.

Down into the cave entrance you go. It is a bit of a small entrance but I managed ok even with a small backpack on. Only the first section requires passing through a more narrow opening, takes only a few minutes, and then the ceiling opens up. Inside, there is some lighting so you can walk through.

You exit outside and walk the main pathway for a bit, and once you hit the road turn right and the parking entrance is on your left.

We visited this on a day when we didn't have much to do as it was barely 3-4 kms away from our stay towards the eastern side. One needs to rent a sarong from the shop opposite to the entrance if not already with you. There's a fair few steps while going up as well. There's also a really narrow entrance for the first few meters but its pretty huge after that. A nice experience overall!

Ive done too many temples in my travels and when we arrived here I looked at the steps and procrastinated as to whether go up or not.We did and then had a 30 min wait to enter the top temple.I was ready to go down when a local told us how great the temple was and that we must see it.(guilted us into waiting)There were ceremonies going on and we finally enetered to a really quite boring temple area and then told to go down this hole in the floor???????Oh my goodness.Sliding down on my bottom to get in and under the rock roof to come out into the most amazing temple cave I have ever seen.We were in awe.It made it even more spectacular because there were hundreds of people in there for the ceremony and the priest singing and doing what they do.Torches lighting the edges and this is a HUGE cave which then leads to another huge cave.I wish I had spent more time there and involved myself with the locals for their prayer but didnt want to intrude.This is a must do experience in Penida and getting out at the other end was an easy walk back to the car park.I loved it.Magical

There is no charge for this place but you have to cover your legs and can rent a sari/throw at the shop where you park.
I thought the cave was amazing, no one there when I went apart from a few locals.
The view at the back is stunning.

We went with a tour guide. We have to hire and dressed in sarong with a sash. Climb some steps to the entrance and paid a fee. Entered into a small opening, crawl for a few metres, (crash helmet optional…joking) then suddenly, the cave opened up, an amazing interesting place. At the time we’re there, there was a group of locals giving offerings to their Gods. All dressed in beautiful traditional clothes. You carry on walking to the end of the cave, no need to turn back, the other end is a big entrance/exit to the outside. From there you walk down some steps there are toilet available to use.
Not many tourist about as not many tourists know about place.
I think they only do ceremonies, festivals and offering to gods in this cave temple, nothing else.
You can stay as long as you want. Take about 10 minutes walk from entrance to exit/back. Obviously, you can turn back to exit from the front, going through the little opening.
An interesting place to visit and to see. I am glad that I’ve been and experienced it.

Watch out where are you going and take a water proof shoes!

Place is nice but dont get too exited since you can get hurt!

I like caves so I did enjoy the trip! But if you dont want to work out then think twice! It is going to be a lot of stairs!

cheers!
