Tanah Lot Temple, Beraban

4.3
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. Before you visit Beraban, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • One to just to get stripes of the list, but as far as we are concerned, too busy and too touristy and we have many more beautiful temples. Not recommended.

  • Bali is one of the Islands in Indonesia, natural charm really make us amazed to be the work of God creating the universe. If you guys want a refreshing and enjoy nature as well as see the beautiful temple building in the middle of the beach is the right place to reply Yes right i.e. ditanah Lot, this area is located in Tabanan Bali area. We can also enjoy the beautiful sunset at Tanah Lot.

  • Different from all other temples. We came to this just before sunset, we were clearly not alone. Inkom is 60000 IDR. We took a taxi from Legian to here and the ride takes quite long because of traffic jams, so enough time. For you to the temple comes you must first pass a lot of shops. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Bali!

  • Very pleasant spot to visit. Stunning waves of the ocean amidst the temple. The main temple is no more accessible due to the ocean water has increased since. Excellent views and some local shopping with great bargains and decent clothing. Must try the heavy duty tender coconut. Don't forget your sunscreen. This is and was the only place where tourists were quite.
  • This is one of the best place in Bali to visit. You can experience a breathtaking and amazing view here. The best time to go there is around 5pm so that you can see the sunset as well which is something should not be missed here. You can easily spend an hour or so at this place and this place must be in your top list if you are visiting Bali. Also make sure you carry your drinks and food if you've kids or for you as well else you'll end up paying almost 5 times more for anything you want. The entry fee is IDR 60k/person which is worth for this place.
  • Oh what a magnificent place! Viewed the majestic sunset from here. The holiest temple in Bali. Come around 5 in the evening to view the sunset across the ocean. The temple inside is only accessible to local people and priests. You can however see the grandeur of the place. Must visit on your trip to Bali. Happy travelling!
  • A great place to visit during your Bali tour, not to be missed at any cost. "Fascinating" is the right word to describe the place, enchanting and mesmerizing. One should visit it in such a manner that the sunset is experienced there with all it's glory. The natural bridge formation and the gap below are immaculate sight and the lapping sea waves surrounding the temple are rarest of the rare, so pleasing and enjoyable to the senses. A great photo stop. The place has a lot of eating joints and souvenir shops.
  • So fascinating temple I have ever seen. It is such an amazing place. Natural beauty is so good. Also the god and goddess are good. Lots of tourists visit here in a year. I will definitely go there to worship gods.
