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.

A very beautiful place. Vey clean and well maintained. Enjoyed the experience of seeing something so old but very respected more »
The temple looks good from a distance. People are not allowed inside the temple. Tickets cost 80k. Check out for the high tide and low tide if you want to go for a swim. The view from a nearby stretch is beautiful but all the tiny shacks and restaurants have captured it. So you need to order a drink or something to sit there and enjoy the view.
