  The Holy Springs Tampaksiring
by cadzand

People from all over Bali come here to take a bath in the holy water for good health and good luck.
According to tradition, each of the pool's 15 fountains has its own name and function: spiritual purification, cleansing from evil, antidote to poison, etc.
The water in Pura Tirta Empul is especially holy, all water used for cremations on Bali is taken from here and it is said to have magical powers for healing.
