Bali Things to Do: 1,242 reviews and 2,477 photos
The Tirta Empul temple lays on the northern edge of Tampaksiring and founded as early as 962 AD.
Like other Balinese temples it is divided into three main courtyards: the front, the middle, and the inner sanctum. Backing the outer courtyard are two rectangular bathing pools, one for men and one for women
Regularly there are ceremonies held here, as on the day we came here. Fascinating parade of beautifully dressed ladies and their offerings. On a hilltop over Tirta Empul lays the palace of Indonesia's first president Sukarno, Istana Negara.
Directions: North from Ubud, on the road to Kintamani.
