There are more European and American faces in Sangquan Temple than the local people. The holy spring pool is blue with fish, and the water is a little cold. The Saint Spring Temple is quite good. The traditional temple gate, the huge fish, the sacred spring water and the elephant temple are all right.
The biggest impression of Shengquan Temple is that the things at the door are super cheap. I regret to see that the goods at Ubud Market are cheap and buy less. There's nothing like that. Ubu is three times as big as Shengquan Temple. How can you bargain? Good luck comes when the holy water is baptized. The local people value the water of the Holy Spring Temple more than anything else.
Tirta Temple is definitely good for people who wants to pray for something, each holy water site is designated for different prayers. The water is cool, clear and the scent inside the temple is really good. The water is so clean that you can drink it directly from the spring for purification. I highly suggest this holy water ritual.
There are more than ten outlets in Shengquan Temple, which are still clear after thousands of years. The efficacy of each outlet is different, some can eliminate disasters, some can expel pain, some can wash the soul, nearby residents come here three times a day early, mid and late to bathe and pray. There is a place for free yarn cage at the entrance of Shengquan Temple. It can be returned after leaving Shengquan Temple. When entering Shengquan Temple, there is a special responsibility at the gate of the temple to check whether the tourists have tied the yarn cage properly. Shengquan Temple has Bali characteristics and is worth visiting. If you want to experience bathing in Shengquan Temple for an hour, you should choose the morning time. There are fewer visitors and no queue is needed. Tourists who come to bathe need to dress solemnly.
Bali is a very worthwhile place to go, because the road is relatively far, so the team rarely go, only free travel and local people (pray). I've been chartering a car from Nusa Duwa for about two hours, so I need to be prepared. Tickets for attractions are 15000 Indonesian rupees (adults) - 8 yuan (RMB), 7500 (children). It's very cheap. The scenic spot is not big (as shown in the figure), the main holy spring, enter is men and women trousers skirt over knee, so most of them wear tube skirt (beautiful), we did not go into the water, just dip in some water. We're lucky. The recent rainy season in Bali, but when we get to the Holy Spring, a ray of sunshine penetrates, and everything starts in 2017!
The water of Shengquan Temple has a sacred duty in Bali. Blessed people are honest with men, women and children when they undress their clothes. But in the eyes of tourists, it is like a terrace bathhouse. It is not a simple bathing, but a kind prayer with all hearts. When in Rome, he sat down and soaked his feet in the cool spring water, and all kinds of petals to pray for happiness, inadvertently, there were fish under the water.
The weather was not very good, but there were still many people who washed their hands and faces with the Holy spring. There were free yarn cages at the door. However, it should be noted that if you want to go down to the spring, you should take off the yarn cages, because when you get to the door, if you get wet, you need to pay the drying fee, although it is not much, it is only five yuan, but it is not necessary to spend this money.
Running to see a lot of bathing, I feel that foreigners are in the majority. Tickets are needed at the door, but they are cheap. You can't wear too short pants or skirts when you enter the temple. You can borrow a yarn cage to surround your waist for free and cover your lower body. Many places of worship in the temple are strictly forbidden to enter and can only be photographed outside. The bathing pool is full of people, queuing to receive holy water at the fountain mouth for bathing. Look at the popularity is really strong, all want to dispel disease and eliminate disasters! ___________
The name of Shengquan Temple comes from a pool of magical spring water in the temple. Legend has it that this spring is the immortal spring water drawn by Indra, the great god, with his sword inserted into the ground. It can purify the soul and bring good luck to people. On the stone platform, there are flowers and other sacrifices in small boxes, which are used to sacrifice gods. Most Indonesians envelope Hinduism. The dragon-shaped pattern on a wall in the temple shows the exquisite sculptors of the local people in Bali. Another unique feature of the temple is that there are many beautiful stone statues that have stood there after hundreds of years of wind and rain. It seems that every stone statue has a soul. In the architecture of the temple area, the carefully carved pillars and stone tables fully reflect the wisdom of human beings, and complement each other with nature.
