Popular with locals

One of the holiest temples on an island that is home to more than 20,000, Tirta Empul, in the small town of Tampaksiring, is a half-hour drive outside of Ubud, and still frequented by local worshippers. Holy spring water runs through the ancient complex of shrines, and it is possible to bathe in the water in order to purify the soul. Pay $2 to rent a sarong and locker, and join the locals in the crystal clear spring, washing underneath each stream of water.
