Ulun Danu Temple Ceremony

Om Swastiastu!

Today's Bali photo of the day comes to us from Ulun Danu Temple in Beratan.

These woman have come from their village to visit one of Bali's most holy water temples and bring holy water back to their village. It is carried above the head to keep it sacred and pure.

Bali Photo of the Day ~ Tirta Empul and The Sacred Springs of Tempak Siring

Salamat Pagi Samua! (Good Morning Everyone)

Today we bring you a photograph from Tempak Siring Temple. Tempak Siring is home to the most holy natural spring in Bali called Pura Titra Empul. Pictured are a local group of Balinese Hindus giving offerings to the sacred springs. After the prayers are completed they will ceremoniously bathe in each of the spouts (except one that remains for the deceased).

Our recent Art and Culture Tour paid a visit to Tirta Empul for a very special private cleansing ceremony. It was very moving and brought several of us to tears. More on the ceremony and Tempak Siring coming soon in a blog post. More photos from Pura Tirta Empul and the sacred springs can be seen here.


Bali Photo of the Day

We have run the Bali Photo of the Day for years but now it has its own special page. Big deal, right? No, not really. We understand that but to kick it off, here is the inaugural Bali Photo of the day.

Bali's sacred Tanah Lot TempleTodays Bali Photo of the Day takes us to Pura Tanah Lot on Bali's west coast.

Many know Tanah Lot as one of the most beautiful Hindu temples of the world and much has been written about its majesty and power. As we have blogged about previously Tanah Lot is one of Bali's seven sea temples to protect against and worship the Balinese Sea Gods. The temple serves many other purposes as well. We have spoken at length about the spiritual attributes of Tanah Lot and you can read them below.
