    While in Bali over the summer Kim, Lucas and I visited many interesting sites.
    (Check out my SE Asia trip recap HERE)

    There was one site that I wanted to check out- mainly due to it's name. (Definitely not the best reason to go out of your way to visit a site!)
    When I first heard of the Elephant Cave, I immediately added it to my list of places to visit. I did a little more reading about the site and decided it was worth a stop. I wasn't really going to visit just based on it's name!

    The Elephant Cave (Goa Gajah) is a short drive from Ubud. From what I read, it dates to the 11th century. It's name comes from people believing the face at the cave entrance resembles an elephant. In my opinion the face looks nothing like an elephant. According to Lonely Planet the entrance to the cave is actually the mouth of a demon.
