Goa Gajah is an archaeological site of significant historical value . Located 2km southeast of Ubud on the road to Bedulu Goa Gajah is carved into a rock face. You can enter it through a demon shaped front.
Here you can see fragmentary remains of the lingam, the phallic symbol of the Hindu god Shiva, and its female counterpart the yoni, plus a statue of Shiva's son, the elephant-headed god Ganesha.
