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.

Visited this venue with my partner. Our guide was very informative. Very spiritual place, well worth the visit, which is the largest Hindu temple in Bali.
