Mayadenawa was the name of the king who ruled over Bali. He was just as mighty as he was arrogant gaining a boon from Shiva to shapeshift at will. With this power, he had hoped to have become god. He destroyed temples and denied his people from worshipping deities. This led to a battle with Indra, the king of Devas, and Indra finally defeated him. And during the battle he pierced his staff on the ground creating a sacred spring that came to be called Tirta Empul

Dedicated to lord Vishnu, this temple has several springs which are said to have been created by lord Indra. The localites believe that the water could purify and cleanse a human from all his past deeds if he bathes here. Roughly translated to ‘water gushing from the Earth’, Tirta Empul is considered one of the 5 holy temples in all of Bali.

The temple of the Holy Water is located in the village of Manukaya, near the town of Tampaksiring situated just below the Presidential Palace.  Soekarnao, Indonesia’s first president built this temple.
