Giri Putri Temple
- 13 September 2018
Giri Putri cave located at Karangsari, Suana village, Nusa Penida. Has a length of about 310 meters and there are 6 places to pray / pelinggih, they are : Pelinggih Hyang Tri Purusa, Pelinggih Hyang Wasuki, Pelinggih Hyang Giripati, Pelinggih Hyang Giri Putri, Pelinggih Payogan and Pelinggih Hyang Amrita Shiva, Sri Sedana / Queen and Goddess Kwam Im Syahbandar . If we visit Giri Putri cave temple, while down in the parking and then cross the street, directly opposite the road, there's pemedek (people who coming for praying) staircase-steps (stairs), amounting to 110 steps. Up above, meets the first pelinggih (Pelinggih Hyang Tri Purusa) in the form of a Padmasana which is directly in front of the mouth of the cave.
After praying at Pelinggih Tri Purusa, pemedek continued to enter the area of â€‹â€‹Goa Giri Putri. The first impression for anyone who come for the first time to this temple is, it will definitely feel scared, worried and thought could not enter because when he saw a small cave mouth only can be crossed one person. However, these thoughts will disappear, when pemedek already entered the cave area. Small mouth of the cave will only pass about 3 meters. The rest, pemedek be amazed by the wonders that exist and certainly did not expect that the cavity of the cave is very wide and high, is expected to accommodate up to 5,000 persons pemedek.
