The sharper edge to traveling in Asia

Written By: herbrunbridge - Jun• 11•10

The temple and holy springs of Tirta Empul are located just north of the small town of Tampaksiring, a few km east of Ubud. Here, devotees bathe in the holy waters and receive blessings at the adjacent temple. Above the springs, WoWasis vistors will see Istana Negara, Soekarno’s former home, from where, it is said, the president used a telescope as he enjoyed watching the visitors to the springs. Tirta Empul can be visited on the same day trip to the temple complex at Gunung Kawi, a short distance away. Tirta Empul is located at GPS: S08°24.883’  E115°18.946’
