Tourism in Bali always has its own uniqueness that may not be owned by other tourist attractions in Indonesia. Nothing wrong if the island of Bali is referred to as a paradise for the travelers who want to enjoy their holiday in this island of Bali. In Bali not only presents tours such as beaches, lakes, or mountain areas only, but Bali also presents Pura tour that has its own charm for domestic and foreign tourists. Pura in bali generally serves as a place of worship for the Hindus in Bali, besides some temples in Bali also serves as a place to melukat. To melukat means to purify themselves, usually a holy spring is required to perform this ritual of Pelukatan.

One of the interesting sights is the tourist attraction Pura Tirta Empul, located in the village of Manukaya District Tampaksiring Gianyar - Bali. To get to this location you need to travel about 36 Kilometers from the city of Denpasar with travel time about 1 hour. This temple is also a historic place because in some buildings in this temple one of which was established presidential palace which was built during the reign of Soekarno in Indonesia. The name of Pura Tirta Empul is taken from a spring called Tirta Empul which, when interpreted, is a water that sprays from the ground. So Tirta Empul is the holy water that spurts out from the ground (holy spring)
