+++ Pilgrims awaiting purification
 
Tirta Empul, or the water temple, has a mountain-spring-fed bath. The bath is used by pilgrims for purification. The pilgrims calmly stand in long lines in the water waiting to dip their heads below each of the water spouts. Some bring offerings which they place adjacent to a spout. After they bow under the water of the first spout they continue moving down the line to the rest of the spouts. The spring is adjacent, you can walk over and see the water pushing up from under the ground.
