Discover Tanah Lot Temple - Bali
The island of Bali is known for its sunny beaches and clear blue waters. So it comes to no surprise when tourists create their itinerary, they fill it out with things reserved for exciting beachside activities. However, located on the shores of this city, the Tanah Lot Temple is the best place where travelers can get a glimpse of the country’s religious side, and at the same time, marvel at the spectacular colors of the sunset as it reflects upon the water’s surface.
Like an islet that has suddenly mushroomed on the sea, the Tanah Lot Temple has definitely nailed the most scenic views for a building of worship. With its open-air environment and a complimentary mix of natural stone and trees, both first time and returning travelers will be greeted with a calm breeze – welcoming them to stop and take a moment’s rest. Though entering this temple is not allowed, its tranquil aura is still able to reach the surrounding temples and establishments – a touch of peace that is added with the spectacular view.
The best time to visit the temple is during the low tide, but not all travelers are that lucky. Luckily, there are other attractions they can visit whilst waiting for the water to recede. With the help of conveniently placed pathways that pass through gorgeous tropical gardens, souvenir shops, and a marvelous view of the temple, visitors may take their time exploring and admiring the nearby areas, so that time would not be wasted. Trip Guru would like to emphasize that the path to the Tanah Lot Temple is quite dangerous, and must be approached with caution. Because of the waves, constantly crashing on the sides, the surfaces are known to be slippery when wet, so please do wear the proper footwear. We would also like to remind travelers that this is a sacred building, and must be treated as such. Therefore, garments that reveal the shoulders and the knees should not be worn.
Admission costs 30,000Rp for adults and 15,000Rp for children and parking, for cars and motorbikes, are 5,000Rp and 2,000Rp respectively. To get to Tanah Lot Temple, travelers need to pass the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort until they reach the end of the street. The temple is open daily from 7:00AM to 7:00PM.

Thumb up, one of the most beautiful temples in Bali!
The temple was a very beautiful sight and inside the temple itself has “pure water” Blessing water of what they have told me. To drink this and be filled with good luck as long as the good deeds that you do. Gives you power and a good health. I was lucky to go to the temple when it was a low tide. That is why I was able to enter. However, there are also souvenir shops that are super super cheap! Must visit!
