Pindul Cave

Pindul Cave is located in Bejiharjo village in Gunungkidul district, Yogyakarta Province. This cave was opened for public in 2010. The name "œPindul" comes from a legend saying that there was a boy named Joko Singlulung looking for his father in the cave and hit his head in this cave. "œPindul" is derived from "œpipi kejendul", javanese for "œhitting your cheek".

This cave is very beautiful for there are many crystal-white stalactites and stalagmites. One of which is called the "œStalactite Gong", if you hit it it will sound like a gong (javanese instrument). At the end of the cave is a large space with an opening above which makes this place very exotic with the sunlight coming through from above.
