Tanah Lot Temple, Beraban

4.3
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. Before you visit Beraban, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • One to just to get stripes of the list, but as far as we are concerned, too busy and too touristy and we have many more beautiful temples. Not recommended.

  • Bali is one of the Islands in Indonesia, natural charm really make us amazed to be the work of God creating the universe. If you guys want a refreshing and enjoy nature as well as see the beautiful temple building in the middle of the beach is the right place to reply Yes right i.e. ditanah Lot, this area is located in Tabanan Bali area. We can also enjoy the beautiful sunset at Tanah Lot.

  • Different from all other temples. We came to this just before sunset, we were clearly not alone. Inkom is 60000 IDR. We took a taxi from Legian to here and the ride takes quite long because of traffic jams, so enough time. For you to the temple comes you must first pass a lot of shops. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Bali!

  • A great place to visit during your Bali tour, not to be missed at any cost. "Fascinating" is the right word to describe the place, enchanting and mesmerizing. One should visit it in such a manner that the sunset is experienced there with all it's glory. The natural bridge formation and the gap below are immaculate sight and the lapping sea waves surrounding the temple are rarest of the rare, so pleasing and enjoyable to the senses. A great photo stop. The place has a lot of eating joints and souvenir shops.
  • Great experience to visit. The wave is too beautiful and dangerous. There is a python, you can take photo with her for charge. Try to cover it in the afternoon, because you can see a wonderful sunset there. #Be safe from wave #Keep clean the environment.
  • We were mesmerized by instagram picture of this place but it barely look like that now. We visited the place on a very special day there were lot of Balinese people in their traditional dress and with some kinda box with offerings inside. It's a pleasure to see Balinese people in their crisp white dress and a big smile on their faces, even though we were not allowed inside the temple we could enjoy the sights from afar. This place also has some beautiful views. As the tides were big nobody were allowed to go to other temple which is like 50 m inside the ocean. There were also kind of a picnic spot where all the families hung out. The temple also had a musical performance which was very impressive, I think it is called Gong. There are lot of shops to get some souvenirs.
  • A very interesting temple. The walk through all the stores is an obvious gimmick to buy from all of them, but once you get through all of that, the temple is beautiful, the view of the rock with temple on it is simply beautiful and an awesome cultural experience. The crowds are of course quite heavy, but just to have the opportunity to see this unique temple is enough for me.
  • A must see if you're in Bali. There are quite a few things to do here. You can of course go and check out the holy spring which is the main attraction of the temple. You do not have to donate anything to the priests when they ask you to. The temple ticket is 60k per person. Go here for the sunset, it's beautiful. You can bargain for souvenirs at a cheap price.
