Located a mere 15 minute drive from the Tegallalang rice terraces, this thousand years-old temple has been drawing worshippers and tourists alike to its lush gardens and holy waters. The name Tirta Empul literally translates as "holy water spring", with the spring feeding the various bathing pools and fish ponds located within the complex. 13 sculpted water spouts line the main bath. After praying at the shrine, worshippers step into the cold waters, bowing under the gushing waters. Legend says that the sacred spring was created by angered god Indra, who at the time waged war against a Balinese ruler who denied his subjects religious practices. The ruler poisoned a spring, causing many of Indra's troops to die. Indra then thrust his staff into the ground, and the holy purifying spring of Tirta Empul spurted out, curing the poisoned soldiers and bringing them back to life. 👍 Consult your guide first if you wish to take part in the purification bath, as this is a formal religious ritual. Please be respectful while on sacred grounds!

Boracay grotto is a famous and controversial landmark on Boracay island, which is one of the best islands in the world. The grotto is a cluster of rocks with a statue of the Virgin Mary on top. It is located at Station 1 of the White Beach, which is a long stretch of powdery white sand beach. Many tourists visit the grotto and take pictures with it. However, the grotto also has a history of controversy. In 2010, the statue of the Virgin Mary was removed by the owner of Willy's Resort, who had converted to a new religion. This caused a lot of protests and complaints from the local people and visitors, who considered the grotto as a sacred and iconic symbol of Boracay. The local government and the Catholic Church intervened and restored the statue after an investigation. The grotto was renamed as Boracay Rock and declared as a government-owned property.

This castle is so beautiful. There are so many tourist destinations in Japan, but I really wanted to visit castles so I can immerse myself with the culture.

Located on the northern tip of the Philippines, Batanes is a dream wedding location for many couples. Tukon Church or Mt. Carmel Chapel is a much-coveted wedding location for its unique design inspired by traditional Ivatan stone houses. Known for its thick walls made of limestone and mortar, this building is considered a heritage treasure. Just imagine saying "I do" while overlooking the rolling hills and verdant mountains!
