Tanah Lot Temple, Beraban

4.2
#1 of 610 in Sightseeing in Indonesia
Landmark Religious Site
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.

  • Mass tourism, which is completely overrated by the providers. People flock to the sunset in the Park, on the site cavort. Completely overrun. Far too many souvenir shops. I was here in 1990--since it was still a great experience with locals. Now - just overrun. Whole busloads are carted over there. Distributed and should be back after an hour. You can save the money.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful temple but very touristic. Lost it's flair and too crowded but still amazing
  • serene beauty. loved each and every bit of this. Do not forget to bring your camera.
  • Peaceful and Relaxing. You need to visit this place if you want to see a little culture of Bali temples. There is a flea market once you enter so make sure you bargain and pickup some souvenirs. Don't miss the famous 'Luwak' coffee which is also available at one of the coffee shops with real civet cats.
