This particular temple that I have visited has natural spring on its ground. The untapped natural spring water is used for ceremonial purposes at the temple. The locals believe that bathing in the natural spring water can cleanse their spirit. In older times, people usually bath naked in the spring water. These days, it is forbidden to do so. People has to be clad in a 'sarong' if they want to go into the spring water.

To this day, ceremonies are still being performed at the temple. You can usually hear monks chanting and the local musicians playing music using traditional Balinese instruments. If you have time, stay around to listen to what they are playing. The music is soothing and enchanting.
