Pura Tanah Lot means literally “Tanah Lot temple” but what is a Tanah Lot? Tanah Lot is a rock formation in the sea off the southwest coast of Bali. Pura Tanah Lot is overall a temple on a rock formation in the sea of Bali. And that makes this temple so special!
Then why do not you might wonder: the temple was already there when Tanah Lot was still attached to the mainland? No! One Dang Hyang Nirartha claims to have built the temple when Tanah Lot was already an island. According to him, Tanah Lot was a sacred place to be worshiped from the Balinese sea gods. It is one of the seven sea temples on the south coast of Bali. From any sea temple is to see another sea temple.
Tanah Lot is located about twenty kilometers from Denpasar, capital of #Bali.
