This is Balinese Hindu temple is famous among locals for its holy spring water. They bathe here to be ritually purified. Founded in 962AD in the time of the the Warmadewa Dynasty, the name of the temple comes from its water source, which is also the main source of the Pakerisan River. The temple doesn't just have pool for bathing, it also has showers. It is dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu. Like most such temples on the island, this one has and outer, middle, and an inner courtyard. People usually pray at the altar in the central courtyard before taking a bath. Make sure you dress respectfully. And if you're not a pilgrim or a devotee, it would not be a good idea to try and bathe yourself. At the very least you should somehow cancelled the temple management. There are souvenir shops in front of the temple and also food stalls. The temple building itself is rather elaborately decorated, and surrounded by lush vegetation. Ask the locals about the legends associated to this Temple.

We went with a guide who really helped us out you need to but a ticket to enter about 30,000 and you get a sarong to wear (for small donation) if you want to enter the water you need to hire a different sarong and a key to a locker (this want that much) you get changed in to your sarong enter the water. The guide was really helpful you only wash under 11 of the 13 water fountains in the first pool and then under 2 on the second pool. The place has a great energy and you feel really refreshed after going in the holy spring water. You can go without going in to the holy water but for me this was the best part!
What a powerful place! Whether you're spiritual or not, this spot will make you feel a unique energy. Watching the springs well up from below is mesmerizing. It's a meditative place, and I hear the moonlight festival is something to behold.
Very nice area, walk around in the rural area before you enter the temple! It's way more authentic than closer to Ubud. Also, the temple and it's ceremonies are beautiful! Yet many tourists seem just to do the ceremony for fun, and only a few people come along and do the proper ceremony. Overall though lovely, and a really beautiful water source that inspired the ritual!
The energy in the pool is no joke, I felt it so strongly. Clean, clean, clean, just clean and pure! Highly recommend coming before 8 am or after 6 pm. Otherwise, the serenity will be disrupted by the crowd. If you can't do that, please make sure at least not to come here after 10 am, loads of group tourists raiding the place!
Very nice temple, you can do a blessing here for about 20 thousand (10 thousand lockers and 10 foe special sarongs). It is a water blessing and you will get very wet, very nice!
