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.

I do recommend taking a dip in the spring but make sure you come in the morning before it gets too crowded with tourists (before 10 am). The clean and pure water in the spring might be cold but once you get in it will...More

Holy water coming out of a spring, flowing into the fountains where one is to cleanse at every one of the fountain. I just touched the Water and it was cold. It was nice to witness.

Not sure why people are complaining about it being busy or touristy, Bali survives on tourism so of course they'll be tourists everywhere but that doesn't mean you should pass up the chance to see this beautiful temple! Super spiritual temple where you can enter...More

This is a holy place and everyone needs to dress with a sarong which you can borrow. If you plan on dipping into the holly waters then take a change of clothes and a towel. The place is very interesting and was very busy at...More

Nice but very crowded (we were in the high season in August), far more tourists than locals in the holy baths, it loses part of his charm.

Great temple to visit. Like most temples, there are loads of gift stalls on the way out, but the water cleansing experience makes this temple more memorable than most. Get in line to bathe in the holy spring water, and enjoy the experience

Our driver advised we stop here for a look. One of the few places he joined us and we could get some information regarding the rituals. I wouldn't feel comfortable bathing here unless I'd been given very explicit instructions regarding the rituals. For example, sarongs...More

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!

When went at 2pm and it was fine. There was a bit of waiting at the cleansing pools, but nothing major. Plus the water will definitely be warmer later in the day than in the early morning. Something to keep in mind if you... More
