Pura Tirta Empul is considered one of the most sacred temples in Bali as Balinese people believe that it holds magical power within. The spring bubbles up into large, crystal-clear tank within the temple, formed by God of Indra to heal his dying armies that fell from Mayadenawa, the evil king. It is a place that is famous for its holy water ritual where everyone can dive into a large pool and lined up to the pouring of holy water. For that, the temple itself holds a very sacred ambience. To get there, it takes only 30 minutes drive from The Udaya with normal traffic.
