Bali is a truly tropical paradise. Bali is a combination of exotic, beauty, and mystery. You can find this combination if you visit Pura Tanah Lot, a very unique Hindu temple in Bali. You must visit this beautiful temple. When you go to Tanah Lot, you also can stay in beautiful hotel resorts. If you are a big fans of golf, you can play golf with a wonderful view of the Tanah Lot temple and fantastic ocean view. Tanah Lot is one of the famous landmark in Bali. 

Tanah Lot means “Land in the Middle of the Sea” in Balinese language. Tanah Lot is one of famous places of interest in Bali, located on the coast of West Bali, at the village of Beraban in Tabanan Regency. Tanah Lot well-known as a Pura Tanah Lot or Tanah Lot Temple, simple in its construction, is dramatic in its ocean-front location and is one of the main temple’s in the worship of Balinese Gods. If you come on the right time, you can see the Balinese Hindu ceremony in this beautiful temple. 

The history:

This Temple was built in the 15th century by the priest, Pedanda Bahu Rawuh or Danghyang Nirartha from Majapahit Kingdom, an ancient Hindu Kingdom in Java. 

Near this Temple there are several small and big shrines, the biggest one is Pekendungan Temple. There is a spring considered sacred not far from this temple.

Tanah Lot, with its solitary black towers and tufts of foliage spilling over the cliffs, recalls the delicacy of a Chinese painting. If hearsay is to be believed, there dwells inside one of the shrines at Tanah Lot a huge snake, discreetly left undisturbed by the Balinese.

The beaches of Tanah Lot are ideal for relaxing, especially in the late afternoons, when the temple on the rock dissolves into a striking silhouette against the evening sky. You can also enjoy Kecak Dance, a very unique dance in Bali. I love this beautiful dance.

With deep blue ocean and spectacular sunset, Tanah Lot gives you unforgettable memories ever like in: Sunset Terrace, Enjung Galuh, Batu Bolong, and Cultural Park, Yeh Kutikan, and Balinese souvenir shops.

Bali... is truly an art by itself: the people, the architecture. I was lucky to visit there twice.
