Overview

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.

A spectacular temple, very different from the rest, although it can get a bit crowded, if you wait long enough it will thin out and it is well worth the wait.
