For more than a thousand years, Balinese worshipers have been drawn to Pura Tirta Empul, whose sacred spring is said to have been created by Indra and to have curative properties. The Balinese come from all over the island on pilgrimages to bathe in the holy springs and thus cleanse themselves spiritually.

The worshipers come as individuals or as entire families and encompass many generations. Fathers and and young sons display a wondrous bond in this most holy place.
