Tanah Lot Temple with English Speaking Balinese Guide and Driver



Surrounded by the Sea

Tanah Lot Temple looks like it is floating on water.  That is because when the tide is high, it is completely surrounded by sea water.  Located on the coast, near Beraban Village in Tabanan Regency, Tanah Lot is a magnificent place to visit.

Visitors can walk out to the base of the temple, but only worshippers may have access to the sanctuary.   It is a beautiful site to experience when the sun is setting.

Holy Guardian Snakes

Be sure to walk down to the caves on the beach to see the black and white sea snakes, which, legend has it, are the guardians of this 16th-century temple dedicated to Shiva by Dang Hyang Nirartha (Pedanda Wawu Rawuh,) the last Hindu priest to come to Bali from Jawa. 

This public temple is visited by many people from all over Bali who come to worship.  The anniversary of the temple is called Odalan and comes every 210 days.
