Visit Tirta Empul Temple, an interesting Hindu place of worship built around a natural spring. Located directly by a water source and with a main building surrounded by a bathing structure, worshipers enter the holy water to be ritually purified. The rustic structures, flowing water, bathing devotees, and surrounding forest complement one another to create an inspiring and unusual sight. Remember to bring your camera to capture it. Tirta Empul Temple is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Tampaksiring Edition.

Tirta Empul Temple Reviews
Our tour guide was great! She let us experience her culture/religion. She explained the process once we got into the water and which fountains we can pray and bathe from. She also brought offerings on... more »
Bonito templo, con zonas diferenciadas (piscinas de agua para rezar y purificarse, estanques de peces, santuarios menos concurridos etc), puedes encontrar muchos lugareños visitándolo y disfrutándolo,... more »Beautiful temple, with distinct areas (pools of water to pray and purification, fish ponds, less crowded sanctuaries etc), you can find many locals visiting it and enjoying it, but at once crowded by tourists, which make long queues to get a photo in the water, and in my opinion, subtracting authenticity to the place. Still highly recommended to visit it.
We visited on a full moon festival and found it quite busy, however a lovely place to visit. A small donation for a guided tour was well worth the while as the explanation of the fountains was informative. It was a little off putting the fact that you have to walk past about 200 street stalls @ the exit in order to get to the car park. Pretty good tourist attraction though and a nice bit of Bali.
You better prepare clothes for changing as you can bathe here. Good ambience, lots of tourists but I could still feel the calm atmosphere. There are certain prohibited area and we have to show some respect for this sacred place. Good for taking photos, large parking area. It will be better to come with modest clothing although they provide sarong there.
