Tanah Lot Temple – the Pilgrimage amidst Picturesque Location

As the name beholds the meaning “Land in the Sea”, Tanah Lot is seamlessly appropriate name that justifies its exceptional offshore placement and sunset in the backdrop.

Tanah Lot Temple in Bali is an 16th century Hindu temple in Bali, believed to be the work of Dang Hyang Nirartha, dedicated to the Balinese sea gods, Dewa Baruna or Bhatara Segara. It is one of seven sea temples along the Balinese coast and home to the ancient Hindu pilgrimage temple Pura Tanah Lot, a popular tourist and cultural icon for photography. The island, shaped by ocean tide, was believed to be a holy place for worshiping the sea gods. The silhouette of the temple is one of the most popular iconic features of Bali. Venomous sea snakes guard the island, and a giant snake, created from Nirartha’s selendang, is believed to protect it from evil spirits. 

In 1980, Japan loaned Rp 800 billion to Indonesia to conserve Tanah Lot, resulting in over one-third of the temple’s “rock” being artificially created. The World Monuments Fund (WMF) funded a conservation study, focusing on sustainable tourism and protecting historic features, and constructing a fence. This tourist attraction is located in Beraban of Kediri at Tabanan Regency, approximately 13 kilometers (8 miles) south of Tabanan.
