  • Enjoy the scenery and the culture. Observe the religious ceremonies. If you want, you can also experience the cleansing ceremony, dipping yourself in the clear, cool water. Be noticed that women having their period cannot join the ritual. You might also want to buy some souvenirs from the many stalls. Bargaining is recommended there.
  • One of the very powerful water purification temples in Bali. Highly recommended. Bring a sarong and a sash ( for a belt ) as well as a towel, a complete set of dry clothes, and a plastic bag for the wet things. They provide lockers so you can enjoy without bags, etc. To make it even more beneficial bring offerings ( flower baskets ) and incense and matches so you can light and offer a prayer or intention before your purification in the amazingly healing water. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. 🙏
