Among the well kept grounds of the Tirtha Empul Temple – better known as Tampak Siring Temple or Holy Water Temple – wander devotees, tourists and also Brahmin priests. These priests look after the temple site and the offerings which are made hourly.

The most photographed area of the Holy Water temple is the fresh water springs which shoot out of intricately carved stones.  The spring water collects into a wading pool where Balinese Hindus receive blessings before going to make offerings. Here a Brahmin priest inspects some of the offerings placed by worshippers. The Brahmin priests in Bali are easily identified by their white clothes and hats.
