Tanah Lot (Balinese: ᬢᬦᬄᬮᭀᬢ᭄) is a rock formation off the Indonesian island of Bali. It is home to the ancient Hindu pilgrimage temple Pura Tanah Lot (literally "Tanah Lot temple"), a popular tourist and cultural icon for photography.
Tanah Lot means "Land [in the] Sea" in the Balinese language. Located in Tabanan, about 20 kilometres (12 mi) North West of Denpasar, the temple sits on a large offshore rock which has been shaped continuously over the years by the ocean tide.

Great parking easy access there is quite a lot to see, including restaurants, shops, market stalls and the amazing Temples and manicured gardens, this place is truly beautiful, you shouldn't miss its known for its unique Offshore setting "TanahLot" is an ancient Hindu Sea Temple. Large waves consistently crashes its rock base and forms the place for Tourist Attraction. Its best viewed in Sunset. The Temple in particular is closed for tourists, but if you wear the local Balinese clothing you will get in. I had to do just that. Its very tranquil setting. A must see place

I believe this is one of the best in Bali though there are many group tourist. This is not a small place and probably need 3 hours (may be 2 but I had 4). Lots of things to see and great opportunities to take shots. Beautiful ocean view and unique scene. This is also a great place to enjoy the sunset. If you want to do this you may find a seat and have a drink on the highland. There are souvenir shops and small restaurants on it. You can have some postcard shots here. Enjoy.

This is a beautiful location to visit, the seaside setting for the temple if gorgeous and peaceful. There is an area to go down to and have water from a fresh cave which is something of a custom here. Try the tender coconuts as well, they are pretty good here. This place is great for a half day trip.

It's really nice to see the view. The temple is standing on the rock. It's really nice to see the beach is really alive. I really enjoyed the sun set it's really amazing. This place is also far from the crowed area and you have to go through the really Bali villages. That's a really nice experience. The temple area is also very nice and clean.

Instead of going at sunset, we went there in the morning. The view was amazing in the morning. We checked the tide schedule and went there during the low tide, the temple is amazing. After sometime the wave started to get stronger and it created breathtaking experience. We really enjoyed it, nice place to visit and spend time. Must visited place in Bali.

Hindu temple. Best time to visit will be sunrise or sunset. Multiple hotels are available serving coconut water and a variety of juices with view of the temple. Many souvenir shops are around the complex. Luwak coffee shops also available in same area. Ample parking available.

Good place for sunsets. Even other than sunset it is a beautiful place. I couldn't go inside the temple so cannot comment on that

A great place to visit during your Bali tour, not to be missed at any cost. "Fascinating" is the right word to describe the place, enchanting and mesmerizing. One should visit it in such a manner that the sunset is experienced there with all it's glory. The natural bridge formation and the gap below are immaculate sight and the lapping sea waves surrounding the temple are rarest of the rare, so pleasing and enjoyable to the senses. A great photo stop. The place has a lot of eating joints and souvenir shops.

A must see if you're in Bali. There are quite a few things to do here. You can of course go and check out the holy spring which is the main attraction of the temple. You do not have to donate anything to the priests when they ask you to. The temple ticket is 60k per person. Go here for the sunset, it's beautiful. You can bargain for souvenirs at a cheap price.

This is a popular sacred temple by the shore. There's a main Temple that is on an island connected by a land bridge but only during low tide. High tide makes this area very dangerous as the waves can easily reach 10 feet especially when it's windy. There are 2 more temples and the one on the right side is connected as well by a land bridge but is situated much higher. Tourists aren't allowed to go inside the areas of worship

What a beautiful beach and awesome sunset, Holy spirit temple and their rituals. Must visit when you're in Bali. The temple located on the beach which little far from the city but worth visit place. You can hire rented bikes from the city to ride till this pace or you can hire a taxi as well. Very well maintained and cleanliness and sanctity. So many Shops for attracting tourists especially gifts shops. Below the temple Holy spirit water from the rocks is rejuvenating and Superb, must try.

-A historical extravagance.. -Very famous destination among tourists in Bali with spectacular view of sunset. -The temple is located on sea level. -During high tide, the water surges in and people have to walk a short distance, to reach the temple. -A cave with Holy Spring is located under the temple, where they splash you with the holy water, put some rice on your forehead and a flower on your ear, and off course you have to put some donation 😜 -The path is lined on both sides with small shops selling souveniers, arts and gifts. -Bargain about 60% from the original price. -The cliff tops are lined with mini restaurants and stalls which sells local food and fresh fruits. -You get Fresh Tender Coconut water at cheaper rates. -Overall a very interesting and fun experience.

Great experience to visit. The wave is too beautiful and dangerous. There is a python, you can take photo with her for charge. Try to cover it in the afternoon, because you can see a wonderful sunset there. #Be safe from wave #Keep clean the environment.

We were mesmerized by instagram picture of this place but it barely look like that now. We visited the place on a very special day there were lot of Balinese people in their traditional dress and with some kinda box with offerings inside. It's a pleasure to see Balinese people in their crisp white dress and a big smile on their faces, even though we were not allowed inside the temple we could enjoy the sights from afar. This place also has some beautiful views. As the tides were big nobody were allowed to go to other temple which is like 50 m inside the ocean. There were also kind of a picnic spot where all the families hung out. The temple also had a musical performance which was very impressive, I think it is called Gong. There are lot of shops to get some souvenirs.

A very interesting temple. The walk through all the stores is an obvious gimmick to buy from all of them, but once you get through all of that, the temple is beautiful, the view of the rock with temple on it is simply beautiful and an awesome cultural experience. The crowds are of course quite heavy, but just to have the opportunity to see this unique temple is enough for me.
