Tirta Empul, Bali

Peace, rejuvenation, and spiritual connection in the holy waters of Tirta Empul, Bali

This was once the bathing place for Balinese Kings.  These are holy waters fed by a sacred spring that the Balinese Hindus have been coming to pray at for over a thousand years.  You enter the long rectangular pool carved out of stone and immediately feel the coolness of the water as you make your way to the edge to leave your offerings.  Tiny woven baskets filled with small flowers, rice, pieces of fruit and incense–food and sustenance for the spirits that you hope to win good favor with.

Once the offerings are given, you go through the twelve fountains and feel the strength of the waters that cleanse and heal pour over you. Rejuvenated you leave the pool, sit back and quietly observe entire families in the act of prayer and giving thanks.
