History Of Tirta Empul

Tirta Empul  was created by Bhatara Indra when he was at war with King Mayanadenawa of Be predecessor, the king is said to be very powerful and has the ability to disappear. Because of his supernatural powers, Mayanadenawa considered himself to be God, for that reason Bhatara Indra fought him.

In a battle that took place in an area, Mayanadenawa and his troops were pressed, then they walked with their feet tilted, therefore, the area where the battle was then called Tampaksiring. In an unfavorable and life-threatening situation, Mayanadenawa came up with a bad idea by creating a poisonous spring (Yeh Cetik) for the purpose of destroying the troops of Bhatara Indra.

The bad idea turned out to be successful and because of fatigue due to constant fighting, finally many of Bhatara Indra’s troops drank Yeh Cetik. Not a few of Bhatara Indra’s troops were poisoned by drinking the poisoned water, which reduced the strength of Bhatara Indra’s troops a lot. To deal with the problem, Bhatara Indra then stuck a pennant-shaped weapon into the ground. Instantly a spring appeared that pooled upwards from the former stab of the celestial king’s weapon.

After drinking the spring, Bhatara Indra’s troops recovered as usual. From this myth and centuries later the spring was arranged and perfected into a water garden by king Indrajaya Sigha Warmadewa in 882 aka and was given the name “Tirta Empul” which means steaming Pathirtaan. And until now this temple is known as Tirta Empul or also often referred to as Tampak Siring Temple because it is located in the village of Tampak Siring and the location is adjacent to the palace of the first president Sukarno, which is in Tampak Siring.
