XVII : Traces of Indonesia – Tirta Empul & Rice Terrace

Time to check out and next stop would be Ubud. On our way, we dropped by to a few spots. Tirta Empul Temple which also known as Tampak Siring Temple would be one of them. It is a holy spring water temple located in Tampak Siring Village, Gianyar regency and it is about 39 km eastwards from Denpasar town.

In this inscription, the Tirta Empul is named by the Tirta Ri Air Hampul and then the name has changed into Tirta Hampul and finally become the Tirta Empul. Tirta Ri air hampul is meaning the water emerge or the holy pool (Petirthan) which is the water emerge from the land.

Along the way, after sleeping and waking up and sleep again, we woke up at the Rice Terrace.

Just another spot to look see.
That’s when I spotted flowers and it reminded me so much of Perth. FML!

Same thing applies. They make those kids linger around the place in a way pressuring the tourist to buy souvenirs. Its a trick! 😀

    Yes, the picture that you love is extremely captivating. It looks like from the post card. I believe it is even more beautiful to see it with our own eyes, right? It seem this place is a favourite, I read about it in another blogger who also went there 🙂

    Exactly, that was why I like it so much! Without any editing taken place. How amazing! I wish someone would buy this pic from me and turn it into a postcard though haha. Its a tourist spot and hence I believe this place will be shared by all Bali's visitors 🙂
