Tanah Lot Temple Bali - Indonesia


Pura Tanah Lot

Pura Tanah Lot - the so called Sea Temple - is a Hindu temple on a cliff on the coast of the island of Bali. At high tide the temple is surrounded by the sea and forms an island.

At the foot of the rock is a freshwater source, constantly guarded by priests,. The temple was founded by Danghyang Nirartha (Pedanda Sakti Bau Rau), a Javanese priest. In 15th Century he fled to Bali because of the spread of Islam.

Particularly the evening hours are especially popular for visitors because the temple emerges in the light of the setting sun.
