Tanah Lot Temple

Tanah Lot Temple is a unique temple that is perched on a rocky outcrop over the sea. Located on the eastern coast of the island, north of Kuta and Seminyak, this temple is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Bali.

Visitors are not permitted to enter the temple, as it is only open to worshippers, however the views of the temple are magnificent.

History of Tanah Lot Temple Bali, Sunset, Entrance Fee & Location Map

History has it that the temple was built following the inspiration of the priest Nirartha way back in the 15th century. The priest, having spent time on the rock where the temple stands today, felt the need to build a shrine that will pay homage to the gods of the sea. He then guided the locals to construct a temple on the rock.

To get to the temple, you will walk through a number of stalls selling all kinds of food, drinks and souvenirs. Be prepared to haggle for souvenirs, as the prices are “tourist prices” and can often be negotiated down.

The temple cannot be reached during high tide, which occurs during the morning and after sunrise. However, the best pictures occur in the morning where the temple is surrounded by the ocean, or at sunset as the sun drops down beyond the horizon.

New pricing was brought in as of the 1st of October 2016, with adults costing 60,000 and children costing 20,000 for entry. You pay the entrance fee at the carpark near the stall and restaurant area.
