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.

Tanah Lot Temple Reviews
This place could be a very nice one, if it would be possible to enter the temple, if it wasn´t so crowded, if they hadn´t a chaotic parking management, if they had a suitable signing, if…. more »
What a sight! The temple is next to the beach and it is huge. There are a lot of things to see and it is just breathtaking to be here. more »
It’s a temple complex.. many ones are closed for the public. There are many shops inside it and around it. The complex is full of restaurants. The place usually gets filled up quickly around the sunset time. So, if you are looking to relax with a view and drinks, then go a little before sunset to take a perfect spot. You can easily spend half a day exploring this place.
A scenic beauty. Must visit place in Bali, but there is more to it than one would expect. Quiet a large place to explore on foot and spend a wonderful evening here. Make sure you have more than couple of hours on your hand to completely enjoy. #Peace
