Photographer's Note

Beneath the crystal clear surface, black clouds sprang from the depths, continuously spreading in small plumes over a sandy bed. The spring bubbled into a rectangular pool enclosed in walls of black volcanic stone, its perimeter fringed with tufts of aquatic moss.

The Pura Tirta Empul is considered one of the five or six most holy temples in all of Bali and has perhaps the most holy water from its natural spring. The Balinese Hindus flock to its clean cool springs because they believe the springs offer wellness and have magical curative properties.

Over a thousand years old, it was built in 926 AD around a sacred spring. For centuries the faithful have congregated here from across the island, coming every 15 days for a tradition that is part ritual and part social affair.
