GOA GAJAH ELEPHANT CAVE TEMPLE

The word Goa Gajah  or Elephant Cave Temple comes from the word “Lwa Gajah”. In the Lontar Negarakertagama compiled by Mpu Prapanca in 1365 AD, there was the name “Lwa Gajah”. If interpreted, into Indonesian, then the word “Lwa” means river and elephant which means a temple where worship of Buddhist monks worship. So the name “Lwa Gajah” can be interpreted as a place of retreat for Buddhist monks located on the banks of the river.
