The Beauty Of Tanah Lot with the Famous Temple

Tanah Lot is a rock formation off the Indonesian island of Bali. It is the home of a pilgrimage temple, Pura Tanah Lot (literally "Tanah Lot Temple") and a popular tourist and cultural symbol for photography and general exoticism.

Tanah Lot Temple is located in the coastal side Beraban landscape, Kediri sub district and Tabanan Regency. It is 30 km west of the city in Denpasar and about 11 km south of Tabanan town. The temple is on the rocks with 3 acres and built within a few minutes on foot, because it is only 20 meters from the coast lip.

This temple is very famous among tourist destinations in Bali with spectacular views of the sunset. In some corners of the coral reef around Tanah Lot Temple there are holy snake tame in black and white paint, might believe to the local community that it serves as a deity property and to guard the temple from the bad influence.

Tanah Lot is said that the work of the 15th be Nirartha century priest. While traveling along the south coast he saw the rock island as beautiful and quiet. Some fishermen saw him and bought him gifts. Nirartha then spent the night on the small island. Later he spoke to the fishermen and told them to build a shrine on the rock for he felt a sacred place of worship of Balinese gods sea.

The Tanah Lot temple built and became a part of Balinese mythology for centuries. The temple is one of seven sea temples around the Balinese coast. Each of the temples were established in the sea within sight of the next, forming a chain along the southwest coast. At the base of the rocky island, poisonous sea snakes are believed to protect the temple from evil spirits and intruders. A huge snake supposedly protects the temple, which was created by Nirata scarf when he established the island.

  1. Hi Rasni,

    It looks like some sort of mysteriously romantic temple surrounded by the sea, that you read about in Chinese novels.

    I like it lots. Imagine being in solitude in a small "island" , listening to the rush of the waves. I told Hubby Bear about it and we would really love to visit when time permits. Crossing my fingers :)

    On another note, it would also make a nice scenery for wedding photography. Fantastic view.
