The Temple of Baal Cave Tour
In 2006, one of the world's most beautiful caves, the Temple of Baal , was transformed with a state-of-the-art light and sound show designed to highlight the cave's stunning features while protecting its environment.
The transformation combines sound effects, evocative music and the latest in LED lighting technology, in a sensory excursion which explores the creation of the cave, its discovery last century and its legendary formations.
First opened to the public in 1907, the Temple of Baal is renowned for its beauty and spectacular features, many of which carry names from the biblical story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal.
Visitors enter the Temple of Baal Cave via the Binoomea Cut, then down the Dragon’s Throat via a long winding staircase.
The cave boasts two massive chambers, one 42 metres high, and is filled with beautiful formations such as the nine-metre long Angel's Wing shawl - one of the largest cave shawls in the world. The cave also offers one of the best displays of gravity-defying helictites.
Intimate weddings can be held in this cave.
