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.

Despite being busy there was a calm serenity as you walked around. Interesting Holy Water springs, interesting wildlife and a great photo opportunity. Very much enjoyed my visit.

A particular temple, where one can purify with water that comes from a natural source. Very famous and very crowded. It has a large tank with many Japanese Koi fish. I advise you to go and see it, it's worth it.

We were lucky to attend during a celebration and there was heaps of praying and festivities which is unlike anything I have ever experienced. Well worth the drive if you're stopping around the places but wouldn't go for just the temple.
