Pura Tirtha Empul (Holy Spring Temple) - Bali, Indonesia


















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.
Tirtha Empul comes from a Hindu legend of a battle between the king Mayadenawa and the god Indra. After Indra’s army’s water was poisoned by Mayadenawa, Indra created the fresh water spring to quench his soldiers. It is believed to hold healing powers.
