Create an itinerary including Tanah Lot Temple
Built onto a giant offshore rock, Tanah Lot Temple remains one of the more venerated Hindu structures with strong ties to Balinese mythology. One of seven significant sea temples spread across Bali's coastline, this shrine is allegedly the work of Dan Hyang Nirartha, a 16th-century religious figure and traveler who founded the island's Shaivite priesthood. Though you can walk to the rock during low tide, keep in mind that non-Balinese visitors cannot enter the temple itself. The site--one of the most photographed in Bali--draws huge crowds at sunset, when soft light bathes the area and creates a nearly magical atmosphere.

  • A famous tourist attraction in Bali with beautiful rock views. There is a temple that stands on a rock which is unique in itself. When the sea water recedes we can visit the cave to wash our face and hope for good luck. Then visit another cave to see the sacred snake according to the locals.
  • This rock formation off the island is home to the ancient Hindu pilgrimage temple. Awesome view and cultural icon for photography. Entrance tickets cost around 60K Indonesia Rupiah and I think 30K for children. There are different shops here you can purchase lots of good things. Fact: Tanah Lot means "Land in the Sea" in Balinese language.
