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.

Dit is één van de mooitste maar ook drukste tempels op Bali. Ik kan zeker aanraden om deze te gaan bezoeken, maar zorg zeker dat je vroeg genoeg gaat om de massa voor te blijven. more »This is one of the busiest temples mooitste but also on Bali. I can definitely recommend getting this to go visit, but make sure you go early enough to stay ahead of the masses.

Ce site est tellement touristique de préférence à visiter le matin pour éviter le bain de foules, deuxième fois que nous allons visiter tanah lot, entrée de 60000 roupies par adulte et 30000 par enfan... more »This site is so touristy instead of visit in the morning to avoid the crowds, second time we visit tanah lot, entrance to 60000 rupees per adult and 30000 per child. Then before entering the temple, large driveway of various stores do business to enormously negotiate, attention to defects for business nike, adidas, etc... Regarding the visit to avoid the crowd, go left to take the pictures, they will be much more beautiful and without getting pushed, through restaurants and continue to golf, person, then you can go back inside about 100 meters, photos to do. Then return to the start and go right up to the end, nobody and the photos are more beautiful. Attention to tinkle 2000 rupees, a lot of vendors, but it's their job. I recommend to do during your stay even though it is very touristy. Sabine

A-must-visit and iconic place in Bali. The temple is divided by the sea in high tide. Great place for photography but what I see there's no spot left for us to enjoy the view since it too crowded. Somebody told me about the sacred snake in cave below is a faux, the real sacred snake is under the temple. Not interested to see it anyway.

A said-to-be sacred temple where the locals pay respect to gods weekly. During high tide in the morning, the water level covers the path towards the temple. During low tides, the water level will drop, most of the time in the late afternoon, then you can pay a visit to the temple. You can also catch sunset here around 5-6pm

Wonderful place to see. Get there around 15:00, enjoy the place, and move to the terrace up the hill around 17:00 to have a drink, order some food and enjoy the sunset. Don't forget a camera with a good sunfilter and a strong flashlight.

Worst experience ever!!! Even one star is too much! Stay away..tourist trap!! You cannot go inside any temple!! You can see some cliffs, sea and there is no map or direction..If you want to take selfies with chinese come here..

Great place to visit in Bali..one of the best sea temples.View is superb during tide.when the tide is low,the beach is accessible.The arched pattern of nearby cliffs gives a great photo opportunity for photographers.One of the best place to enjoy sunset in Bali.Foreigners are not allowed inside the main temple.Many souvenir shops and restaurants are in the vicinity.
