Visit Tirta Empul Temple, an interesting Hindu place of worship built around a natural spring.

The rustic structures, flowing water, bathing devotees, and surrounding forest complement one another to create an inspiring and unusual sight. Remember to bring your camera to capture it. Tirta Empul Temple is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Tampaksiring Edition.

  • An exceptional place, a place of mystical. However, it is not sensitive or do not interfere with the followers of Hinduism ritual kompieli. You need TO simply respect when we we are not followers of this religion. From taking pictures but there is absolutely no problems. Personally, I did a whole lot of them here. THIS Memorial also spiritual ... Very recommend visiting this place. After the visit for us in August alone as if better.

  • A temple where the Balinese come to pray in the water source and many tourists follow... Loan of sarong at the entrance which do not go in the water 15000 rupees/p

  • We went for a Sunday afternoon and it was very interesting to see the fervor of locals to purify. Tourists are going too, dressed in a sarung, but it's a shame because some sincerity in this approach. The temple is beautiful. Entry to 15, 000rp.

  • Pura Tirta Empul yang terletak di Tapaksiring Bali ini merupakan satu dari sekian destinasi wisata yang ramai di Bali. Banyak pengunjung khususnya wisatawan asing yang berkunjung ke tempat ini. Selain pura, yang terkenal dari tempat ini adalah air pemandian suci. Menurut kepercayaan orang sekitar jika mandi di tempat ini maka hajatnya akan terkabul. Banyak wisatawan, khususnya wisatawan asing yang tertarik untuk mandi di pemandian ini. Hal menarik lagi yang ada di tempat ini adalah, setiap pengunjung dewasa baik pria maupun wanita yang akan masuk ke tempat ini wajib mengenakan kain sarung khas. Namun tidak perlu khawatir karena tempat ini menyediakan sarung tersebut yang boleh dikenakan secara cuma cuma atau sumbangan seikhlasnya untuk mengenakan sarung tersebut.
  • Large beautiful temple full of good vibes. The best parts are the Hindu shrines located just behind the springs. Tranquil and serene, they offer a place to sit and pause after a hectic road trip. Take time to admire the architectural details - so much thought and attention have gone into the construction and care of the temple. A lovely temple site
  • This is the place to take holy water, we can clean our self with bathing with this holy water at the pool.. If you we're lucky you can watch the ceremony from other temple to take the holy water, and this temple have regular ceremony in October, the ceremony also provided 'rejang' dance, after visiting the temple we can shopping for souvenir, clothes, bags, painting etc.. Bali authentic .. My suggestion bid half price... And shop in the middle area of the market.. More competitive.. Price here more reasonable than at other southern region of Bali island.
  • Very good place to visit. Don't hesitate to take a bath in the holy spring water. For that don't do like a majority of people taking bath with your own clothes. You have a change room to wear only the sarong and go to the water. If your clothes are wet you cannot go inside the temple.
  • It is really impressive when you see westerners and easterners in a same place are doing an oriental ceremony. Culture and tradition are two main column national identity and culture which Balinese people have done their best to conserve it and you can see one of the effect of it in Pura Tirta Empul
