Pura Tirta Empul
If you’re looking to wash away sin or just restore your mind, body, and soul, then Pura Tirta Empul is a must-see in central Bali. It’s one of the most popular temples on the island with the name translating to ‘holy water spring’ for good reason. The temple complex is approximately 9.3 miles (15 kms) north of Ubud’s center. You can take a spectacular route through the rice terraces of Tegalalang to participate in the gentle 12-step cleansing ritual that has fascinated locals and tourists alike for generations.
