The name of Tirta Empul is loaded in an inscription which is kept at Sakenan Temple, Manukaya village, Sub district of Tampak Siring, about 3 km from Tirta Empul Temple.
In this inscription, the Tirta Empul is named by the Tirta Ri Air Hampul and then the name has changed into Tirta Hampul and finally become the Tirta Empul. Tirta Ri air hampul literally means water emerges or the holy pool (Petirthan) which is the water emerges from the land. Historically, the fountain emerges from the land is believed that it is the infinite creation. This water source is arranged and sanctified by king Indra Jaya Sing Hawarma Dewa in the year 882 Saka (960 M). He has given the name with Tirta ri air hampul. The data is loaded in the inscription that is located at Sakenan Temple. Besides of the above epigraphy data, in Tirta Empul Temple is also found the archaeology omission like Colossus Yoni, Arca Lion, Tepasana and Tirta Empul Pool.
Based on papyrus of Usana Bali, it is depicted that Tirta Empul is created by Bhatara Indra (Sun Deity) when bearing arms against the king, where his palace is located in Bedahulu Countryside. Bhatara Indra was known as an incredible king who could lose his enemies. That is why he then came as an arrogant king and showed himself as a God. The Mayadenawa King owned the assistant (Patih) named Kalawong. They prohibited people to do Yadnya (praying to the god). Because of this condition repeatedly occurred, a lot of disaster, disease epidemic, agriculture fails and miserable life society often happened.
Finally Betara Indra (one of Hindu God) gave battle against the kings, happened in Tampak Siring and then the Mayadenawa was gone to the wall and disappear. King Mayadenawa also created poisonous pools which could make Bathara Indra and his people die and faint after drinking the water. Then Bathara Indra stuck the weapon of Umbul-umbul and finally the water was emerging. That is the reason why, people in Bali now believe that the water from this pool is sanctified by the Hindu society and heal various diseases. Every day, this place is visited by a lot of Hindu people to do the ritual and sanctify them self.
