    Tirta Empul Temple

    The legacy of a traditional good versus evil tale, is home to a holy mountain spring that feeds the Pakerisan river.

    Why to visit this place

    Built originally as places of worship, Bali's historic monuments have evolved into popular tourist destinations that include not only temples but also stunning works of art. Pura Tirta Empul, or the Holy Water Temple, is one such temple that is well-known and frequently visited by both residents and tourists. Balinese Hindus worship this beautiful 10th-century monument dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The rich lore and legend of Tirta Empul, as well as the mystery surrounding its healing spring, attract visitors from all over the world.

    Tirta Empul is busy and active all year thanks to the legendary lore and therapeutic virtues of its holy spring. The mythology of Tirta Empul's soul purifying water makes it a must-visit for those interested in exploring the mysteries of Indonesia's ancient past.

    Special Tip:

    Visitors can admire the temple carvings but are forbidden from having the ritual bath.
