The Bali Lempuyang Temple Tour is one of the top travel destinations and best tourist attractions in East Bali. The tour begins by visiting the Goa Lawah Temple (Bat Cave Temple), which is considered one of the most important temples for Hindus in Bali. It is believed to be a place where Hindus carry out ceremonial processes to escort and worship their ancestors in order to attain the best place by the side of the god they believe in and achieve peace.
After that, the journey continues to the Tirta Gangga Water Palace. Tirta Gangga was once a water park belonging to the Karangasem Kingdom. King Anak Agung Anglurah Ketut Karangasem Agung built it in 1946. The name Tirta Gangga derives from “holy water” and the sacred Indian river, Gangga.
The final destination of the tour is the popular Lempuyang Temple. This temple is also considered very important and the sanctity of the temple is highly guarded as Balinese Hindus always need holy water from Lempuyang Temple for ceremonies at home or in village temples.
