People pray in front of the cave
The center of the holy complex of Pura Goa Lawah, the "Bat Cave Temple".
The pilgrims seated down in front of the cave for leaving their offerings and doing their praying.
This is a place for deep meditation for priests, despite seeming impossible to do so amid the chirping, with the hollow cave opening amplifying the noise. Yet, people believe the constant natural high pitches aided in their focus of thoughts.
Only the Brahmins from the top caste have access to the cave with the thousands of bats and the living large python snake.
My companion from the next lower Satria caste, the normal population, all other visitors and tourists are not allowed to enter the cave.
