Tanah Lot Temple, Beraban

Must see · Religious Site · Landmark
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.

  • The temple is situated on top of a rock, almost resembling an island with water all around and on the beach. Most photographed of all Bali I believe and obviously no one would miss in their...  more »
  • Awesome place to catch the sunset! The priests in the temple were very helpful in crossing across through the tide. Very unique..  more »
  • Tamar lot temple was a must go spot in traditional tours. That’s why it’s always crowded. The best time to visit is dusk.  more »
  • A fantastic place to spend an evening and watch the sunset as the Tanah Lot temple is located plumb in the edge of the sea. With a portion embedded a few metres into the sea. Serene place despite the crowd and all you can hear is the sound of the waves amidst the ruff n tumble. Truly scenic and a photographers paradise. No permission to enter inside the temple and foreign tourists can only take a detour. But it's a place worth visiting and a must see place if you are visiting Bali.
  • Great place to witness the natural beauty of mother nature. Really enjoyed my halt here and ended up clicking few photographs along with my wife. Highly recommendable place to visit from my end to experience the peace and calm nature. Well maintained, clean as well. But, I do recommend people to either visit early in the morning or after 4pm. Or else you will have to face the power of sun God. Too hot!
  • We drove here and had to pay 123000 rupiah for 2 people and parking on a scooter. We arrived at around 3pm. It's quite a nice place, but it's pretty busy. You can walk up the temple, only a tiny bit, if you pay to be blessed by holy water. Funny that. Apart from that, it's a really nice walk around the area, many people were relaxing on the grass.
  • The place is really worth to visit. It will make your mind fresh. The temple becomes an island during huge tide. The sunset is awesome and must see from here. High tide and low tide view are different but both are beautiful. Must see in Bali.
  • Beautiful, well maintained and clean place. The area is surrounded with water and the temple itself is in the middle of the water. A lot of people stay to watch the sunset, and you have a blessing happening at the sunset as well. There is a holy snake area that you pay a fee for looking at then but not my cup of tea. Very scenic and overall one of the most beautiful places to go in Bali.
