  • I'm a big fan of India and have taken part in many Hindu rituals there. The Tirta Empul makes Hindu purification easy with lockers and sarongs for rent and an easy to follow system of bathing tanks. S...  more »
  • We purify before marrying in Ubud. It was an incredible experience! I confess it's the pools are filled with mud, frogs and CARP! It's a unique moment of peace of mind! I highly recommend a visit!

  • A mesmerizing holy place to take a holy bath. Come prepared with your own sarong for the wet dip. Bring a towel and change of clothes. Lockers are available for rent to keep your belongings. A water proof camera also would be helpful. The temple complex is beautiful to walk around. See the hot spring source of the water. The exit has a maze of shops to navigate and bargain before you reach your vehicle.
  • If u want go here... U must wear the cloth/scarf at the waist that have been provided... Also.. If u want go here... Don't forget to bring clothes.. Cause there were a pool for clean your self for bad things... Also.. U must bring hair band or clipper for your hair.. If u want go to inside the temple... Cause there were area u must tie your hair...
  • Beautiful temple. The level of details in the structures are just amazing. It really gives you a feel of Bali, and its history. There's usually a long queue of locals and foreigners taking bath in the holy water. Worth noting, you'd need a Sarong, even if you're wearing a jeans. They don't really care about the top, it seemed like they don't mind minimal clothing on top part of your body. You can borrow a free Sarong from the Sarong counter near the entrance.
  • Beautiful experience!! Definitely a must do. Please don't be alarmed, the water may be chilly and there are fish in the water. You must be covered. Bathing suit, shirt, and sarong if you are getting in and if you're walking around. There's a sarong that you can borrow to walk around and one for rent if getting in the water or bring you own. The changing areas are unisex. Follow the flow of the locals to ensure you use only the spouts that are appropriate. After going in the water, walk around the entire temple.
  • There are many reasons to visit this wonderful place, architectural, historical, religious, spiritual, personal, curiosity - your choice. Though if you are open, you can find something here to satisfy them all. It's definitely one of those must see while you are in the region kinda places. Enjoy!
