by its outside - an edge of a field overgrown by bush. Further downwards, the ancient road divides into two roads, which have deeply gnawed into the slope expanding downwards to the Svētupe bight. The Holy Grove, apparently, used to be situated at the verge of the steep slope by the roads. Now the site has been overgrown by bush and trees, it is featured by one larger oak at the verge of the river's steep slope, which, although, has not yet reached the size of a Great Oak. At the edge of the slope, there are a couple of ancient digging places. The Grove's Site does not stand against the relief in any way. The composition of the ground — reddish sand, ash remains could not be traced. In the archaelogical excavations of 1973 lead by J. Urtāns, there was an ash layer of up to 0.3 m deep discovered possibly from the burnt down oak trees. According to tales, in the cavities of those oaks, they used to put offerings. From the steep slope, which further turns into a sandstone cliff, a broad view to the Kuiķuļi bight opens.

If the Liv Sacrificial Caves have been immensely promoted, then the Kuiķuļi Holy Grove has no public signs.
