Tirtha Empul Water Temple Purification Tour
Located in the Tampak Siring village, Tirtha Empul Water Temple was built in 926 AD during the Warmadewa Dynasty. Legends say that this temple was made by God Indra when He pierced the earth to create a spring of the elixir of immortality, which He revived His forces who were poisoned by Mayadenawa. Thus, the spring waters are believed to have magic healing waters. Although it is more than a thousand years, the Balinese still come to bathe in the holy water for healing and spiritual merit.
The name “Tirtha Empul” refers to the spring found within this temple; it is the source for the purification baths, pools and ponds, whose waters will finally find their way to Tukad Pakerisan River. The Balinese Hindus flock to clean, cool springs because they believe these waters offer wellness and have magical curative properties – cleansing people of physical and non-physical impurities. As it is a holy site, anyone visiting Tirtha Empul is expected to wear a decent clothing and sarong.
Take part in a traditional Balinese purification ceremony at the historic Tirtha Empul Temple in north-east Ubud. Your Guide would love to take you through every step of the Hindu purification ceremony in this 1000 years old temple; including the presentation of offerings and partaking in the holy water rituals.
