Tirta Empul - Review
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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bali itinerary 3 days.

Tirta Empul, Bali Reviews
This was a great temple with a great experience. They give a sarong to you to walk around in. Then, if you want to go in the water, you need to buy a water sarong. The water sarong is 10,000 and a locker is 15,000. The water is cold at first but then very refreshing. Take your time in the water, do every water spout, and enjoy the feeling of the tradition and culture of the Balinese. If you don’t want to go in the water, you can just watch and walk around the temple. I went in the afternoon and there was many tourists, perhaps a different time would have more locals. All the locals and workers of the temple were very nice and helpful. Definitely recommend
Touristy, but worth the visit. Can get very crowded during the day. Worth coming to explore the beautiful architecture, which is all in great condition. You can see natural springs too. Bring a shawl so you don't have to rent one. Smile and be polite. They have a place where you can change into a different shawl too and jump in the water to receive a blessing. I'd look up how to do the ritual properly before coming for maximum enjoyment.
This is a Hindu temple with a natural holy spring. God Indra is believed to have created the spring The place is nice with natural beauty of trees and Balinese artistic architecture. The water from source falls to pond at about 13 outlets. Holy bath is taken here , which is believed to free us from sins. Tourists have to wear traditional Balinese dress, which is available in the temple. Those who take holy bath should hire additional dress and lockers are available. It is convenient if one additional set of personal dress with towel is taken by us. A great experience of Hindu culture in Bali.
Beautiful place and something of great cultural significance. The locals have done a great job maintaining this place. What i don't like about it are the hordes of Chinese tourist who doesn't seem to respect this place who are just spitting, throwing garbage and washing their feet on the water where others are praying. But apart from this there are plenty of souvenir shops outside the temple. Be prepared to haggle! 😁
Another quietest holy place in bali. Very serene and calm environment with some old statues of God's and deities. Sarong is free. Do not get with sarong while taking a bath in holy water otherwise you'll not allowed inside the temple, regardless you are not allowed to get inside the main location of temple if you don't have a prayer offering and sarong. Holy water appears clean enough. A very Royal environment overall.
