AT TIRTA EMPUL OR SEBATU HOLY SPRING
In Indonesian culture, water is a symbol of strength and purification, a carrier of energy and a spiritual element of nature.
Tirta Empul is a historic, 1000-year old temple in north-east Ubud. The Sebatu Holy Spring is known as one of the most ancient and holy places in Bali for spiritual purification — and completely inaccessible without a guide. According to a priest of Dalem Pingit Sebatu Temple, in 2007 the spring water was found to change colour in accordance with the karmic condition of those who bathed in it.
