Tanah Lot is a rock formation off the Indonesian island of Bali. It is home to the ancient Hindu pilgrimage temple Pura Tanah Lot, a popular tourist and cultural icon for photography
A temple combining the cultural, natural and historical elements of Bali in one spot. A must-do/go during your stay in Bali.
Tanah Lot Temple is a religious and cultural landmark, cherished for its natural beauty. On an offshore rock, it has an idyllic backdrop of the ocean and is itself a spectacular place for a selfie, especially at sunset.
To many people, Tanah Lot epitomizes the romantic island of Bali. Tanah Lot means Land in The Sea, a perfectly fit name for its unique offshore settings. The silhouette of Pura Tanah Lot is one of the most popular iconic features of Bali. Imagine the image of a Balinese temple (pura) perched high on the rock, facing the wide open ocean. With the crashing waves below and the dramatic colors of the dusk sky as background, lit by the slowly disappearing sun. Tanah Lot is located in Tabanan, only around 30 km away from Denpasar. The temple is located some 300 meters offshore. The history of Tanah Lot temple was believed to date back to the 16th century, by Dang Hyang Nirartha, a respected religious figure in Bali. Inside the temple area, you can just walk around and explore its photogenic surroundings. Although famous for its sunset view, you may also want to try coming at really early in the morning, so that there will be less crowd and higher chance to have a serene image of the temple. There are also several temples that you can visit around Tanah Lot. They are Pura Pekendungan, Pura Batu Bolong, Pura Jero Kandang, Pura Enjung Galuh, and Pura Batu Mejan. These temples have a variety of legends and myths surrounding their historical roots. When Nirartha left Beraban village, he bestows a special keris -a blade like a traditional weapon- to the Beraban leaders. The Ki Batu Gajah keris was said to possess the ability to repel plant diseases from crops. This keris was kept in Pura Pekendungan, before it is now safely stored in Puri Kediri. But on Odalan day, Ki Batu Gajah keris is always involved in the ceremonies. Pura Batu Bolong is another extraordinary sea temples build upon a jutting rock cliff. Batu Bolong means “hollowed stone”, depicted from its obvious characteristic. It is said to be the twin of Tanah Lot, with many similar features between the two. Located in Canggu, Batu Bolong sea temple is the cradle of the holy spring water. Many important Balinese rituals and ceremonies are held on this stunning location. Pura Jero Kandang in Tabanan is a temple devoted to seeking wellness and protection for livestock and agricultural crops. Pura Enjung Galuh is a temple renowned for a place to worship the Goddess Sri. Here, devotees pray for welfare and prosperity. Pura Batu Mejan is the location of Tirta Penglukatan, a holy spring believes to have to purify bliss against all negativity. Bali is indeed known as an island of the thousand temples. Make time to explore and discover which one is on your top favorite place to be!

TANAH LOT Best with a moterbike/scooter. Or with pak Gusti; the driver. Of course possible at any moment of the day but we would suggest early morning. Drive first into the direction of Tanah Lot. Visit the Temple while it’s still calm and not so warm. When you arrive don’t mind all the tourist attractions; nice market, just go into the direction of the Temple. Take the stairs down! When you go right, you will find another small temple, and a rock with a big hole and a nice view on the surf. If you go left and take a little walk between the stalls, slightly going up, you’ll find empty terraces but with a stunning view on the whole Temple. A perfect picture spot! Going back (or on the way) you can stop at ‘Echo Beach’, a professional surfers beach with a nice place called the ‘Beach House’. They have a perfect lunch/dinner, but also a nice spot for sunset.
