Gua Puteri, Lenggong

Gua Puteri located at the Bukit Kepala Gajah limestone complex, stands 94 metres above sea level. The cave has some unique formations such as stalactites and stalagmites in the shape of the Malaysian map, as well as frogs, a married couple, an elephant’s head, valance and other shapes.

Gua Puteri is also a tunnel formed in the belly of Bukit Kepala Gajah. Paintings by the Negritos found in the cave are not pre-historic but were made 100 years ago. There are no archaeological findings at the cave, but it is famed for its legends.

Two stalagmite formations found here are said to be of the guardians (prince and princess) of the cave. Locals believe that if the stalagmite were to be scaled over, people would fall sick. A married couple stone formation forms the fable of the curse by Sang Kelembai and a frog. 

This cave is among the most visited caves by tourists in Lenggong.
