Landmark Tourist Spot
Purify yourself in the holy waters of Istana Tampak Siring, a 10th-century Balinese Hindu water temple. Fresh spring water, which the locals consider sacred, pours continuously out of 30 water spouts in two pools. Dedicated to Vishnu, the Hindu god of supreme consciousness, the temple is overlooked by a presidential palace built in 1954 (currently used to host guests of honor). After a ritual cleansing in the main pools, feed the fish in the koi pond, and admire the many shrines and sculptures. Don't forget to bring a bathing suit and a change of clothes if you plan on entering the spring.

Where to stay in Tampaksiring

Tampaksiring's small size means rather limited accommodation options; however, looking at the rest of central Bali or even Ubud, 18 km (11 mi) to the east, will prove more fruitful. Ubud has a large array of lodgings to suit a range of budgetary requirements, from the affordable and midrange, to the luxury four- and five-star. The most budget-friendly option remains the family-run guesthouses, or homestays, offering clean and basic rooms--perfect for backpackers.
