Tanah Lot Temple, Beraban

4.2
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.

  • It's really nice to see the view. The temple is standing on the rock. It's really nice to see the beach is really alive. I really enjoyed the sun set it's really amazing. This place is also far from the crowed area and you have to go through the really Bali villages. That's a really nice experience. The temple area is also very nice and clean.
  • Instead of going at sunset, we went there in the morning. The view was amazing in the morning. We checked the tide schedule and went there during the low tide, the temple is amazing. After sometime the wave started to get stronger and it created breathtaking experience. We really enjoyed it, nice place to visit and spend time. Must visited place in Bali.
  • Great place to Visit. Once you enter the main gate, if you take left, you'd see the main temple of Tanah lot. which is closed at high tide. On the right side, there is another small temple, the rock formation underneath it looks like a tunnel. if you go far right, there are gardens and a cafe. beyond that is the new building being constructed for kecak dance. Don't miss any of these. Explore fully. Even though its almost right in the midst of the sea, the temple has a fresh water spring which is considered Holy. The priests there bless you with flower and put rice on the forehead, once you sprinkle yourself with that holy water.
  • The temple is gorgeous and is right out in the sea. It is a beautiful place at anytime of the day. You can also venture to the temple during low tide. It can get crowded toward near the edge close to the temple as a lot of people crowd around for photography. Do be careful not to get push off the edge as some tourist can be rowdy. There is also a street full of shops selling souvenirs and sarongs. Do venture to the other opp side of the temple to catch a glimpse of the Indian Ocean as well
  • Another must have in Bali, but this place is crowded. So much crowded. But the view is amazing, and the best time for visit if before sunset.
