  • The special feature of this holy water water part of this temple is that the local population feel completely submerges into the water. Next to it at the temple are a multitude of ceremonies at the same time. Therefore, there is much to see in this beautiful temple. Unfortunately also very massive and also many many tourists; This is the serenity.

  • Holy water, Hindu culture visiting all religions and praying with devotion..Must visit spot in Bali visit 
  • 非常不错的寺庙,有池子可供沐浴圣泉,亲身体验和只是观看完全不同,泉池当中居然有鱼 走进寺庙核心区域,可以近观泉眼,水量很大,还是蛮震撼的

  • Architectonic masterpiece. Here you can see how cleaning body ritual in Hindu religion looks like. You can also experience that by putting sarong and bath yourself. No fees, just a donation for the sarong, which you have to wear during your stay at Pura Tirta Empul and approx 10k IDR for the locker if you want to change for the bath (sarong for taking a cleaning bath is not provided).
  • 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.
  • Beautiful temple complex built around a holy spring...ample parking available...there is a small entrance fee for tourists, and you can borrow a sarong at the entrance if you didn't bring your own (of course a donation is expected but that's really up to you)...of course there is the usual line-up of souvenir shops as you exit the place...some local food options too if you are hungry
  • Wash away your sins and be blessed in the holy waters of this temple! Have someone local explain to you about the temple and the spring. Very interesting!
  • 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.
