Settled near the town of Tampaksiring, Tirta Empul is a beautiful Hindu water temple and a popular attraction in Bali. The place is known to see a lot of visitors every day. Walking inside the temple, you will come across the temple compound that has petirtaan in it. A petirtaan is a bathing structure filled with holy spring water used for purification rituals and festivals. Apart from petirtaan, there is a temple pond of holy water which folks consider being pure hence called ‘Amritha’. The temple was built in 962 AD under Warmadewa dynasty rule and has been a major place of religious significance since then. Ensure to visit at least once if you have an ardent love for history and culture. Coming here is a great way to meet the Balinese people and learn about their life better.

We got a private tour guide around the temple and I must say our guide was not only informative but also had the most positive energy. He took so many great photos of us and took the time to answer all of our questions. In the end all he asks is for whatever donation we thought he deserved. We ended up giving him 200,000rp. Also we did not book him ahead of time but found him working at the information area. If you take the time to go here I highly recommend you getting cleansed by the water. These waters are pray to and blessed by all Balinese so they do have some magic to them. Sarongs are provided for you with a small cost and make sure to ask how to do the ritual in the water.
Well worth a visit. Ask one of the staff to show you around and explain how the process works for better understanding and more respect towards locals, and give them a little tip. On the way out - take the same way you walked in, don't follow the exit signs unless you want you want to spend good 10 minutes trying to get out from a maze of souvenir shops.
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!
The energy you will fell in this place is great and there’s not comparable I saw so far. The problem is that is confuse and a lot of people will try to be your “guide” to help you to process what you should do. Just pray and follow the line for the water and you will be fine
Beautiful temple with stunning pools. Very serene and calm vibe. Definitely recommendable to come early in the morning (8ish), where we had the place to ourselves.
