Tanah Lot is a coastal temple in South Bali. A visit to Tanah Lot for sunset is one of the most popular organised tours offered in Bali.
Tanah Lot is one of the important directional temples in Bali. The temple is on a rock just offshore. It is said to be the work of revered 15th-century Hindu priest Nirartha and forms an important element of Balinese spirtualism and mythology.
This is an extremely popular tourist destination and the whole area is often very busy indeed, especially in the late afternoons, pre-sunset.
