Stalactites are deposits of calcium carbonate which hang from the ceiling and can be found in limestone caves. Stalagmites are icicle shaped rocks facing upward which can be found on cave floors. In Goa Putri, stalactites and stalagmites meet to form pillars. This cave also has a pond fed from the caves waters which originate from the Semuhun River, which empties itself into the Ogan River. The pond makes this 20 meter wide and 160 meter long cave more beautiful. In some parts of the cave are wide stones where you can sit and sleep. The cave is dark although some 5 watt lamps are installed in various locations. This dim light gives the cave a very magical feel.
