Tanah Lot Temple, Beraban
(4.1/5 based on 7,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Tanah Lot Temple a centerpiece of your Beraban vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Beraban itinerary builder.

  • Great view of sunset, lots of souvenir shop around. You can walk on the shore when the tide is low and have a close look of the temple. 
  • Temple Tanah Lot is one of the main attractions in Bali. The temple is located on a rock off the island and apparently reachable by foot at low tide. However, when we there waves were huge and tide wa...  more »
  • A great place to end a day's tour, I play something cloudy. . Anyway is a good combination between the temple and the bottom of the sea... get there at 5 pm and stay until 6: 30 pm-highly recommended.

  • Its one of the most beautiful temple in bali or perhaps in the world..the temple was made near the cliff, but the abration made it separated from bali island. Magical
  • The place is really worth to visit. It will make your mind fresh. The temple becomes an island during hig tide. The sunset is aeesome and must see from here. High tide and low tide view are different but both are beautiful. Must see.
  • I enjoyed the scenic view of the natural rocks formation and the nice water in the beach splashing into the old rocks. The place is clean and great place to enjoy the time while visiting Bali, Indonesia. I love to go back here!
  • Far away from the center. Do not waste time if you have already seen the other temples. Not worth to waste time on your way Tanah Lot is perhaps the most frequently featured temple on Bali’s postcards due to its unique offshore setting and sunset backdrops. The temple is located on the coast of Beraban village in the Tabanan regency, featuring an ancient Hindu shrine perched on top of an outcrop amidst constantly crashing waves. It is simply among Bali’s not-to-be-missed highlights on tours to Bali’s west, but is also an easy standalone trip – only a 45-minute drive from Kuta. The onshore site consists of smaller onshore village temples alongside visitors’ leisure facilities that comprise restaurants, shops and a cultural park presenting regular dance performances. The best time to visit is during the holy day of Kuningan, when pilgrimages usually take place, and on the temple’s anniversary five days after.
