Photo of the Week: Holy Spring Temple, Ubud, Bali

Hot springs_1280_for_Web

Known as Tampak Siring, this temple is an active place of worship for the Balinese and it is visited in droves by both foreigners and locals alike.  In the photo above is the natural springs that are on the temple grounds.  The other attraction is a pool into which water from the spring runs and people wait to wash and purify themselves.  When we visited, it was absolutely packed with visitors lined up waiting to wash away the bad luck.  This brings us to our bonus picture for the week:

The temple is a common stop on day tours from Ubud, which can easily be arranged through either hotels or one of the million touts on the streets.
