The first stop is the10th century Tirta Empul temple is silent witness to the old Balinese kingdom years, particularly the Warmadewa Dynasty. The main highlight here is its collection of freshwater pools, lined with over a dozen fountains where pilgrims wade through and seek spiritual purification by ritually praying and going under each fountain in succession. Afterwards we stop at Gunung Kawi a collection of ancient shrine reliefs carved into the face of a rock cliff.
