Honeymoon Series: Pura Tirta Empul

Right after sightseeing Bangli Village, we rolled to Pura Tirta Empul, a Hindu Balinese water temple in Gianyar. This place is interesting to observe religious ceremony, people bathing themselves using holy water to purify their soul, traditional music, beautiful statues, lots of fishes, etc. Close to the area, you can see the first president’s houses.

The entrance ticket was 15K IDR per person (October 2017). To enter the temple, we had to cover our lower body with Sarong. It was believed that the evil spirits may remain there. The local person was really helpful and friendly. They offered us an escort in exploring the temple. They said they will tell you the original history of this temple and everything. However since my husband and I wanted to enjoy our time, we gracefully rejected it.
