"The most mysterious/worthwhile temple to visit in Bali"

Bali is a charming and mysterious island, and also the most well-known island in Indonesia. It has rolling mountains, a vibrant culture, beautiful oceans and sky, world-class resorts, and friendly local people. Beyond the beautiful oceans and sky, you will also have the opportunity to explore many mysterious and peaceful temples.

TANAH LOT TEMPLE, the Temple of the Sea God

Tanah Lot Temple is one of the three major temples in Bali, and also the most famous of the seven temples located by the seaside. Especially at sunset, the beautiful view of the sun and the temple are reflected in the water, making it the best time to visit. When the tide rises, the temple is surrounded by seawater, like an isolated island. The temple was built in the 16th century, and legend has it that during a storm, a monk's belt turned into two sea snakes, which suppressed the storm and became the guardian of the temple. When the tide rises, the waves unable to cross the shore are blocked outside, and when the tide ebbs, visitors can cross the embankment to see the rocks that are said to be the home of the sea snake "protector". The spring water here is the source of all the sacred water in the temple. Priests will sprinkle this sacred water on the heads of tourists to bless them. You can even taste this cool holy water.
