About
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.

We absolutely loved our trip to Tirta Empul temple. The temple was stunning and the grounds were so beautiful. Upon entrance, we were asked if we wanted a local guide to take us round the grounds. I am so happy we agreed to it because he taught us so much about Balinese Hinduism, about the story of the temple, the origins of the Holy Water and the ritual in which we should carry out under the fountains and the significance of each one. I highly recommend, and make sure you get a guide if you want the true Balinese experience. This is exactly how you learn about other cultures and religions.

It was a great morning. Beautiful sun rays, fresh water and air. I was doing "Melukat" purification ritual.

Usually this place is very busy. Especially before noon till evening. That's way I came earlier and got that great vibes. Locals also told me the steps, do's and don'ts of the ritual. They are very friendly.

Don't need to worry of your carry luggage, there is a locker room too..

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!
