  • 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.
  • A sacred place for the Hindu peoples, still the serene and calm beauty all around attracts almost all kinda of tourists to come and see the place. The coolness of the shrine water makes helps people to have a refreshing and soothing feelings while they love to bathe within the pure water. The natural beauty is truly amazing and its a must watch tourist spot.
  • Interesting place, active worship ceremonies, wouldn't go into water to cleanse myself, beautiful and serene. Easy to find. Normal entrance fee. Not crowded. Sarong obligatory, not sure each is appropriate.
  • Very nice holy water temple. Great body and spirit cleaning ritual. But many people. You should get there early in the morning, otherwise the cue is huge
