Great temple that tries to find balance between mass tourism and traditions. Locals are going to get "purified". Make sure to follow their lead for a unique experience.

Here in this temple you can do and witness the "sacred bathing". It also has a pond full of Koi fish. Oh, they offer free sarong when you buy a ticket so please don't let other shops fool you into buying one at the entrance unless you want your own for souvenir.

I loved them temple and grounds and there was something very special about the bathing areas for purification from the spouts. I was going to do the bathing ritual but seeing so many tourists lining up to do it really seemed to take the spirituality out of it, if we were able to do it as part of a Hindu ceremony would be different. Worth a visit.

Beautiful temple. Really special, probably the best I have seen in bali. It s also possible to take part at the water purification ritual. But please DO NOT drink the water if you do it. You 'll thank me later.

The Tirta Empul Temple is located in a village called Manukaya in the town of Tampakassering, a short distance from the Regiment of Tampakassering Gianna, a short distance from Bali. At the same time, the Tirtha Empul Temple is located just below the Presidential Palace in Tampacasering, so it is safe enough for visitors.
The temple complex looks very beautiful on a full moon evening as one of the best times to visit the Bali Tirtha Empul Temple. You also come to this temple by 8 am but you can see this temple very well. However, you can visit this temple in any month of the year.
This Tirtha Empul temple is located in the Regency village of Tampaxaring Gianna. Tampac Sering is about 42.63 km from Ngurah Rai International Airport. So, it will take you about 1 hour 20 minutes to reach the main premises of this temple.
