As a cultural masterpiece, Keris is a Balinese traditional weapon that was used for war and eventually recognized as a world cultural heritage.

In the 17th century, the temple was not the only place of worship for the king of Klungkung, but also the place to test the truth of people who broke the law. One legend goes that this cave houses a giant snake! be aware!
