The second stop is at Elephant Cave (Goa Gajah), this cave was built 11 century years ago by the king of Udayana. The name came from the name of the small river nearby, it’s named Lua Gajah (Female Elephant). In front of the cave built a place for bathing with six figures (Sapta Gangga). Inside the temple, there are places for meditation, west side is the statue of Sri Ganesh (the god of protector), the east side is three Lingam, believed one with black cloth is for Wisnu Gods symbol of water, a white cloth is for Siwa Gods symbol of the air and red cloth is Brahma Gods symbol of fire.
Third stop to Monkey Forest Ubud, the monkeys within the Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal are commonly called long-tailed macaques. Their scientific name is Macaca fascicuiaris. On Bali, there are Balinese long-tailed macaque troops (populations) that live in areas where they have little to no contact with humans and troops that come into contact with humans on a regular basis. In the western part is Dalem Temple (temple dedicated to Siwa Gods), in the east is the cemetery, and Merajapati Temple is dedicated to Goddes of Durga (wife of Siwa God).
The fourth stop is to see Kecak Dance at Batubulan Village, A Kecak performance is very simple. The men’s chorus chants the words Cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak, in rhythm, over and over again, for this reason they are called the Kecak or Cak dance. The Kecak dances consist of about fifty men wearing only a loin-cloth, the upper part of their bodies left bare. They form rows of circles, in the middle of which is a coconut oil lamp. The Kecak dance is performed for dance-dramas and the story presented is taken from the Ramayana epic.
