The Sacred Spring in Bali, Indonesia
21 February 2013
My photo was captured in Pura Tirta Empul , this sacred spring which located in the north central area of Bali Island, Indonesia. As we could see the foreigners hugged each other tightly after bathe in the spring. Although In most people's heart, the treatment of spring is so holy and magic, but for the couple the power comes from each others hug and love.
Besides, I have learnt more from the local people about Pura Tirta Empul. For more than a thousand years, Balinese have been drawn to this Spring, which sacred spring is said to have been created by Indra The main attraction here is a long rectangular pool carved of stone, filled with koi and fed by the sacred spring via 12 fountains.Balinese believed each fountains have difference power like different curative properties,such as for health healing、spiritual merit、lustrating the balefulness. Usually, they first make an offering at the temple, then climb into the main pool to bathe and pray. Many collect the holy water in bottles to take home.
Believed , you will find more beautiful moment like this photo there.
