This is really a purifying water temple. One of oldests on Bali. Definitely worth visiting. Take your time - do not hurry. And you can also purify yourself.

Nice temple, had a lot of visitors, you can move quickly in and out, the entrance fee includes renting a sarong that everyone is required to wear.

I could recommend booking a professional meditation tour before hand so you can do some meditation and guided shower here.

Very positive and peaceful ambiance overall.

A beautiful, picturesque, quiet water temple located a short distance from Ubud. Our guide brought us here reasonably early in the morning (around 9am) and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. A couple of locals were bathing in the holy water and this temple represents a less crowded version of the more popular Tirtha Empul Tampaksiring. A lovely water temple and quiet, peaceful place to pray or meditate

A wonderful temple complex, beautiful and spiritual, peace is perhaps the most suitable for it. They took with them an individual guide, who told everything in an interesting way.

We arranged a traditional water purification ceremony with the local priest. It was the most tranquil & peaceful ceremony we’ve ever done in Bali. We practically had the whole temple complex to ourselves. No tourists & only a few locals. It really was a once in a lifetime experience.
We started with our offerings to Vishnu followed by the water purification then our blessing from the priest, chanting for 20 minutes & finished enjoying Balinese ceremonial snacks.
Incredible experience.
This is the most authentic temple experience you can get in Bali.

Few tourists, and everyone there really seemed to appreciate the serenity and beauty of the place. There were very few (apparent) Instagrammers. What a nice break from all the other beautiful spots in Bali that are just overrun. 30,000 IDR entrance fee includes free sarong.

Wonderful place to tour around for a half hour or so, not overtly crowded and very spacious. Entrance fee includes a sarong. Beautiful koi pond as well.

People are posting photos of the WRONG temple here!

Not a very big site. Takes medium level of climbing stairs. A lot of photo points around. Will be good to go with a tour guide who can illustrate the history around the temple.

Originally we were gonna see 'Pura Gunung Kawi' temple with big statues but our driver got mixed up and took us to 'Gunung Kawi Sebatu' - both similar names and close to each other so easy to make mistake😅
We were so happy though that we ended up here as at the time there was a local ceremony and to witness Balinese culture first hand was an AMAZING EXPERIENCE! 🙏💯
Because of the ceremony the complex was decorated in stunning flowers, Balinese people were dressed up beautifully and women carried the fruit offerings on top of their heads. The whole place just looked MAGICAL, filled with burning incenses, clear water ponds, gorgeous carvings.
Very peaceful temple not touristy as others.
