Bathala Cave

Church Cave

–       The biggest cave, big enough for 100 people,  also called Kuweba ng Simbahan. It was used for worship and believed to be the home of Amang Bathala, the Supreme God of Tagalogs, the indigenous inhabitants of the Philippines.

Python Cave

–       Named as Python Cave because it is guarded by numerous living pythons. But not like what we knew about this kind of snakes, that are normally aggressive and dangerous, those that can be found at the cave are not harmful. They are said to have never harmed anyone. Visitors even take pictures as close as 35cm. The locals explain this with the fact that the snakes are the pets of Bathala. Strange, isn’t it?

Cemetery Cave

–       This cave was used as a burial site. Excavations revealed earthen jars, china jars, coffin fragments and human relics, including 13 skulls. The excavation was carried out by the French archaeologist Alfred Marche.
