A very active temple built around a bubbling spring, Pura Tirta Empul is an interesting place to observe Hindu devotees purifying themselves by means of ritual bathing. It is especially recommended to visit on a full moon day, which has special significance in the local religion.

I went for holy bathing early one morning - it was truly a beautiful experience. I highly recommend going early in the morning to avoid the crowds (I was told it can get very busy in the day time) - its a truly energising experience!

A crowded commercial temple. Buildings are beautiful and grounds are well maintained. The bathing ritual needs to be understood to have value. Unfortunately for me this was a disappointing visit!

Holy water spring temple is located just 30 minutes from Ubud. We went there by hiring a scooter. The entrance is 15k/person and got a sarong. It is so beautiful and must visit for everyone!

Hi! From what I remember It's 15.,000 rupiah to get in and then the sarong is $10,000. There's a locker room and you can rent a lock for about $5,000 or $10,000 rupiah. You can bring your own sarong and just change in the... More
