When there as part of our day tour, Thought that it might be an interesting thing to do to go into the cleansing waters. The temple surroundings were cool and nice. The temple was good. The cleansing ritual was a fun and spiritual thing to do. Can't believe that there were fishes swimming around which you when from water spout to water spout. There was also a few frogs in the crevices of the pool. There was also a small snake that slithered by who took no notice of the bathers. Hysterical! Please remember not to bathe under the last 3 spout on the left of the big pool. It is for people that have been bereaved. You get a sarong and a locker for a nominal fee before you do the cleansing pool. It was an experience worth doing.

One of the highlights of our trip to Bali was experiencing the purification ritual. I'm glad our guide convinced us to go through with it--ie., get into the water and offer our intentions at the fountains. It was a great and memorable experience. Didn't hurt that it was a lovely photo op as well.

What can i say - more of Bali. Too many tourists for my liking. Even besakih temple is now over run. Find a quiet place to meditate.

This is a popular temple to visit in the vicinity of Ubud but it is well worth a visit as it is very different from many other temples in the area. Despite the crowds it is an amazingly serene and peaceful place.

This was our second trip to this temple, Having skipped the water emersion on the first trip we decided there was much to be thankful for and do the complete Hindu purification ritual, esp. for myself having just finished my first year cancer free. The ritual bathing is quiet involved and requires moving from one fountain to the next covering your head three times in the fountain and giving thanks .Truly a beautiful experience leaving you with deep and profound freshness. Also pretty hungry
