Tanah Lot Temple, Beraban

4.2
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.

  • One of the famous temples, I found this the least of what we already had seen, probably because the weather was so touristy, but yes yet again something that you have to have seen but seen sting there is not too much time in, take it as a snack.

  • Nice to have a x seen to have, but not a particular or a strikingly beautiful temple. Ceremony is pretty fun, sea view nice, but that's it.

  • 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.
