This is one of Bali's holiest water temples and I highly recommend a visit here. We went very early in the morning to avoid the busloads of tourists in the afternoon. Make sure to go with a knowledgable driver or guide so he can explain...More

This by far is the highlight of Bali - so mesmerizing in its energy, beautiful temple of holy water and simple Hindu rituals that energize the body, mind and soul. Take a guide, read up before if you are not familiar with Hindu beliefs. This...More

A must-see destination in Bali. Loved the Koi pond and the bathing pool. Can be crowded at times but offers plenty areas for photo opportunity.

Probably it is is just fortune but this was the only temple among all (~5) the tourist visited temples in Bali that I have seen in operation. It provides the feeling of liveliness more than any other I visited during my stay.

A totally spiritual and beautiful experience. A wonderful, stunning place. We must have struck it at the right time as there were very few tourists. Make sure you understand the rules and rituals. This place was truly a blessing.

You don’t need to book anything through a tour group. There is a Kiosk outside the temple to buy ticket. You need someone (driver) to get you there, but fix with him the transportation cost.
