  • A wonderful place of purification. I recommend it to everyone. I wanted a baby and I was at the springs to cleanse all the bad. We have a beautiful daughter. Thank you🙏

  • Beautiful and amazing temple from start to finish. They require you to wear a sarong to cover your legs but will lend you one for free if you don't have your own. You might want to consider hiring a guide to give you a guided tour to give you the history of the sites of the temple and help you to take photos as they know all the best angles and spots. They are not expensive and are worth it. There are lots of tourists there bathing in the holy water, we didn't have time to but I would have if we did. Really recommend this temple.
  • Nice temple. You can definitely live the Balinese culture and experience the holy water blessing ritual. It is however a well-built tourist trap. The temple’s flow is built in a way that exposes you to both fruit selling ladies at the entrance and a labyrinth of touristy shops towards the exit. Both tourists and locals are welcome to go through the ritual, keep in mind the entrance fee is slightly higher for tourists. It is definitely worth visiting when exploring the neighboring sites, however I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit.
