Overview

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.

This is a very popular temple that locals visit. The belief is that the water from the springs contains healing properties, so some take back the water to drink, others bathe in it for purifying etc. Was a good cultural experience for us.
