  • Beautiful temple. The level of details in the structures are just amazing. It really gives you a feel of Bali, and its history. There's usually a long queue of locals and foreigners taking bath in the holy water. Worth noting, you'd need a Sarong, even if you're wearing a jeans. They don't really care about the top, it seemed like they don't mind minimal clothing on top part of your body. You can borrow a free Sarong from the Sarong counter near the entrance.

  • Beautiful experience!! Definitely a must do. Please don't be alarmed, the water may be chilly and there are fish in the water. You must be covered. Bathing suit, shirt, and sarong if you are getting in and if you're walking around. There's a sarong that you can borrow to walk around and one for rent if getting in the water or bring you own. The changing areas are unisex. Follow the flow of the locals to ensure you use only the spouts that are appropriate. After going in the water, walk around the entire temple.

  • Super popular but not too crowded temple (at least in early February) with a cleansing pool (clear water). Didn't go in but the colours were really great. Nice landscaping too. And also the road to get to it is really spectacular (we followed google, the local taxis sometimes try to cheat and drive on the longer routes so you are recommended to check where they are going).

  • A beautiful temple in Bali It reminded my holy trip to Muktinath in Nepal. There are many water streams. You are supposed to remove your original cloths, wear a cloth given by the temple authorities, and take a holy dip/bath in most of those streams. And it is supposed to get rid of all your sins. The water is crystal clear. And cool. The experience is amazing. The temple is also awesome. There are plenty of shops selling local merchandise. If you like my review, click on "like" below.
