Tanah Lot Tours – Bali, Indonesia
About this place
Tanah Lot is a pilgrimage site built on the small rock near the coast of Bali, some 20 km from Denpasar. It´s full name is Pura Tanah Lot. It is believed that the temple dates back to the 15th century, and that it was constructed by the priest called Nirartha. The story says that the priest liked the rock and stopped to rest there and that some local fishermen offered him presents. That same priest said the place is holy and to build a temple there and worship the sea gods. So they did, and today it forms one of the seven sea temples. Even though the temple was built to honor sea gods, one has to notice the strong Hindu influence.
During the centuries the temple started to deteriorate, but with the help of the construction experts, the site was renovated. Numerous tourists come to see this picturesque site and take some of the most spectacular and exotic photos.
