A Day at Tanah Lot Temple
One of Bali’s most iconic sea temples is Tanah Lot, which means earth (Tanah) and sea (Lot), famed for its spectacular setting on top of a huge rock overlooking the sea. When we got to the place, I was really in awe to see a lot of tourists in the place as early as 8:00 in the morning. I got the chance to be blessed by the priests at the bottom of the temple because it was low tide at that time and I also had the chance to sip the freshwater at the fountain. We allotted 2 hours stay in the place to explore and take some good photos but the longer you stay the more tourists arrived and the heat can get pretty intense, so about an hour we head back to our rented car and go to our next destination.
Overall, I enjoyed Tanah Lot and I would say it’s still worth visiting the place in the morning rather than waiting for sunset as the place will really get crowded and busy. With so many incredible temples in Bali, I think Tanah Lot deserves a day in your itinerary.
How about you, have you been to Bali? What’s your favorite temple that you visited?
