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.

My favorite temple. You can try to walk in the holy water side by side with hindus and tourists. There are 2 exits. One directly to parking area. One through a big market with the same thing for sale as all markets at Bali

It is closed to Ubud just about 20minutes by motorcycle. Once entering the temple you will see the typical balinese temple with giant statues. We went into the water and was great.

If you are going with a local tour I would ask the drivers ahead of time they know, because sometime the temple has events and it opens certain hours and the driver can help you with that!
