Tirthas can be swayambhuta like Prabhasa or nirmita (constructed by others) like temples. However merely taking a bath in the rivers or lakes at the teertha is not enough.

Title : Immortal India Volume 1
Author : J. H. Dave
Pages : 232
Price : Rs 45
About the book:

Visiting a tirtha (pilgrimage place) has always been considered good and religious. In ancient times learned seers travelled from place to place and sanctified many of them. Making a tirtha yatra has been considered as important as performing a sacrifice or holding a puja. Anyone can go on a tirtha yatra and there are so many religious places in India that one can select and visit. Before embarking on a tirtha yatra one has to study the importance of the place and learn of its history. One has to go there with a pure mind, a clear heart and discipline. Normally a fast (abstinence from eating) is a prerequisite and then a holy bath in the waters of the tirtha are prescribed. Those without faith, those full of sins, with a doubting mind, those who are Godless and those indulging in bad reasoning will have no benefit from going on a tirtha yatra while the really sincere ones will wash away all their sins by visiting a tirtha stan.
