Tanah Lot Temple, Beraban

(8,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Tanah Lot Temple a centerpiece of your Beraban vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Beraban itinerary builder.

  • Rode 2 hours from Ubud to this place, amazing view at every angle, better if you could photoshop humans out of the picture. Unfortunately couldn't get into the temple, remember to get their traditiona...  more »
  • Think this is a must go tourist spot to Bali hence it is crowded with people especially tourists. View was nice but not easy to get a nice shot if the place is too crowded.  more »
  • This is a great location to photo a beautiful sunset. Every tour driver will want to take you here. It's VERY busy, but worth the visit in my opinion. Not very many places to grab a meal and if you do...  more »

  • 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.
  • One of my top 3 picks for Temples in Bali. Other 2 are Uluwatu and Ulan Danu
  • Tanah Lot is a truly magical place, in high tide the temple becomes an island, in low tide lots of caves are discovered and everyday it is possible to witness traditional indian ceremonies. You can see a spectacular view of the ocean as well.
  • Stated that it is a a sort of must see in Bali (being one of three most important temples of the island) there is nothing else to add as a positive feature, except for the landscape, which is beautiful. The atmosphere is absolutely touristic and you are under the impression of being in a market instead of in a temple. You don’t even need to be dressed properly, so there are floods of people visiting it in shorts and top tank, which is not exactly appropriate for a religious area. The entrance ticket is a robbery if compared to the other Indonesian prices and you are even asked to pay for the toilet. Don’t expect anything spiritual.
