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.

If you are going with a local tour I would ask the drivers ahead of time they know, because sometime the temple has events and it opens certain hours and the driver can help you with that!
