The Holy Spring Temple

After the visit to Mount Batur, Kintamani, we headed to one of the famous temple in Bali - Tirta Empul Temple, also known as the Holy Spring Temple in Tampaksiring, Bali.

Legend says that a war between good and evil has taken place here. And... errr... I've forgotten the story told by our tour guide, again. Okay, I wasn't paying any attention to what he said because I was busy snapping some pictures. The only thing I can remember is that the water here is the source to the victory for the good side. Anyone want to tell the story? I'll update the story here if there's any :P


The Hero


The main entrance to the temple. It was difficult to capture the main entrance without any distraction with tourists going in and out of the place.


This little entrance is just right next to the main entrance. It looks more like a backdoor of the temple to me.


Futsal, badminton, hokey, ice skating, goyang car, [fill in any activities that can fit into the size of the compound here] anyone?

Next up...



See the white shirt guy in the picture? That's hamsap Nian You looking at people (male, female and kids included) bathing... hahahahahaha

Hey... I didn't notice there is such beautiful temple in Bali. Or is it because the photos were captured extremely well that makes the temple looks great? Anyway, wish to visit Bali one day hope it'll be suitable for me , city-type person. Lol.
