I was heading to this serene place not quite expecting the strong connection I now feel for this magical Balinese sacred site.
After bidding Canggu Beach farewell and settling in peaceful Ubud, I planned a very special pilgrimage to the thousand year old Holy Springs of Tirta Empul and it was absolutely incredible. The highlight of my stay in Bali.
Pura Tirta Empul is a Hindu Temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu, the embodiment of mercy, goodness and the sustainer of life. It’s located near Tampaksiring in the Indonesian province of Gianyar and is most revered for its sacred natural spring.
