Pura Tirtha Empul Temple, Bali 2012

I have to pause the update of Hanoi trip first but jump straight to the recent Bali trip. My daughter requested me to update Bali trip first as her friends wanted to see the pictures that we taken..
I brought my family to Bali for a 7 days 6 nights trip last month., just enough to cover for almost all the famous tourist places..
We were stayed at Ubud area for the first 4 nights because most of the places we wanted to visit were nearby Ubud area..Our first stopped was Pura Thirtha Empul Temple (a Hindu temple famous for its holy water).
