A very active temple built around a bubbling spring, Pura Tirta Empul is an interesting place to observe Hindu devotees purifying themselves by means of ritual bathing. It is especially recommended to visit on a full moon day, which has special significance in the local religion.

Beautiful temple. Easily done in 30 min but worth it. Just a lovely peaceful place to walk around. Don't miss the nearby Gunung Kawi temple (about 10 min drive away.)

My mother was very lucky and blessed to visit this temple at her birthday. Which can be the best was to celebrate your birth and one more year of living by purifying and cleaning your body, mind and soul? Don't be afraid and jump into the water to clean yourself. Please follow all local rules. It's a sacred place.

The holy springwater temple was big and amazing. To be allowed to enter the temple you have to have a sarong, which you can borrow there. You also have to cover your shoulders and knees, if you have long hair you have to tie it up and if you are on your period you're not allowed to enter. If you... More

It is really a beautiful place but unfortunately we had driven so far to get here and the torrential rain started so we didn't get to properly enjoy it! Would recommend it.

This is a very large temple complex. There is an entrance fee. They have sarongs to wrap around your body (small donation suggested). You shouldn't get these sarongs wet so bring your own if you want to enter the water. This place has many interesting photo opportunities. There is a large market on the way out.

The water temple is very interesting here. It can be misused as some tourists don't appreciate the temple for what it is. It's enchanting, refreshing and a very holy place. Enter the water and just sit vscj and relax and take the experience in. You can take your own sarong which is handy. The only thing that lets this place... More
