Pura Goa Lawah, Bali’s famous sacred temple that is located fixed to a cave in Klungkung Regency, East Bali, is introducing high technology to make sure the temple is given its ‘deserved respect' by tourists and visitors, particularly speaking of the visitors' outfits.

As reported by Bali Post, the temple (that is inhabited by thousands of bats and a large group of snakes) will be installed with CCTV cameras to ensure that visitors wear the obligatory sarong and waist slash.


What happens if you do not wear the obligatory essentials?

If any tourist or visitor is ‘spotted’ to visit the temple without sarong or waist slash, s/he will be escorted back to the entrance booth the obligatory items are available for rent. Furthermore, if one is seen taking pictures inside the temple without wearing sarong and slash, s/he will be required to delete the pictures on the spot.

Since there is Piodalon (anniversary) of the Pura Goa Lawah going on from 1-4 March 2016, there is no entrance by tourist allowed into the inner temple to respect the on-going religious events.
