Pura Tirta Empul; one of my favorite temples in Bali. Pura Tirta Empul is a Hindu Temple famous for its holy water and bathing rituals of purification. Tirta Empul, meaning "holy water spring," is the name of a water source located within the temple. There are 13 purification spouts that line- up going from east to west. After prayer at the shrine, one must enter the clear icy cold waters and pray/ bathe in 11 of the spouts in order. The last two are reserved for purification purposes in funerary rites only. Many of the temples in Bali allow visitors but usually have a restricted area that's only for those following the religion. That was not my experience at this temple. If you follow the proper etiquette and rules, you too can bathe in these purifying waters. Before you go: • It is essential that you are respectful, especially if wanting to bathe in the water. Don't do it for the gram! In other words, there should be a purpose of WHY you're there. For me, even before arriving in Bali, I knew this was a temple I wanted to visit. I'm not a Hindu, but I've read several books on Hinduism; I practice yoga and meditate regularly. I've sat in Buddhist temples and prayed, I've visited many Catholic churches worldwide and have lit candles. I believe in angels, I believe in spirit, I believe in divine power. So for me, since it was allowed, this was a perfect time to connect, do my mantras, and purify my thoughts, heart, and spirit. • Dress Respectfully-- This is very important when visiting any temple in Bali. You must wear a Kamen wrap or Sarong around the lower body with a sash around the waist. This is for all; Male and Female. Don't have one? No worries, you can rent one there! • The water is mountain cold! So mentally prepare yourself! • This temple has become very touristy so chances are It will be crowded. If you do take a pic for IG, don't hold up the line... Don't be that person. We want to thank our driver @balionmymindtour for taking so many pics of us there without disturbing others. Hit him up if you're planning a trip to Bali! **This post is too long for trip advisor; read more on the blog. Link on bio**

This water spring is very refreshing with a clear water from the earth flows through different fountain with specific functions. Soaking in the fountain is an amazing experience between the fresh water and the smell of the incense stick as well as the flower of the offerings around us and gives a beautiful feeling. We suggest you to visit this place! So lovely

Beautiful temple and it’s surroundings, definitely something you want to see and perhaps experience the water purification. If you are currently not feeling comfortable standing close to other people, or worry about hygiene in general, the latter is probably not for you. The sales people at the shops on your way out and at the parking area have a hard time currently. Besides the ladies selling fruit around the actual temple, the other people were extremely invasive...even while buying from them.
