Many tourists and locals alike visit here to visit the holy spring. It gets very busy so I would go early. It is a nice place to wander around for an hour. Sarongs are available free of charge for all.

This is an experience that everyone that visits Bali must have. Make sure you carry a sarong with you so you don't have to rent one at the temple

Something a simple as immersing your body in the sacred natural spring water of this temple makes you walk away feeling refreshed, and spiritually cleansed. Definitely worth the visit
