  • One of the most sacred temple of Bali. Maybe not the best but certainly very interesting. Purification pools are beautiful and the first two are open to tourists (whatever we may think about the sight of tourists taking a shower memory alongside real Hindu, this demonstrates the openness of the Balinese). The ceremonies are particularly lavish with processions of a thousand people in traditional costumes offerings, musicians and dancers. Not to be missed!

  • Beautiful temple but quite touristic. You might be stopped by a security guard or other staff members at the parking, who will take you under the tent or tree and force you to buy an entrance ticket for 15k. I don't really know how legal is that but why they don't have a normal ticket office then?! At the entrance or inside no one asks your ticket. They catch tourists like this randomly, coz we met only few of them with tickets. Also as someone already mentioned here, when you borrow a sarong they force you to give a donation and they are quite pushy. These kind of unpleasant actions brings negative affect to your impression from this spiritual and sacred temple.
  • The spring is the source of Pakerisan River. The water from the spring flows through the purification baths and pools where devotees can take a bath and a fish pond that surrounds the outer perimeter down to the river. The pond is filled with Koi.
  • The Good 1. Saw Hindu religion in action. How they do offerings, blessings, bath 2. Nice to see Hindu architecture 3. Big place so not easily crowded The Bad 1. When you borrow sarong there is a "force" donation. Defeats the purpose of the meaning of donation
  • Dont miss to bath/showering yourself under the spring outlet like some locals do. The coolness will remains along your day.
  • Amazing places.. Pengen ksana lagi.. 😱🙏
