About Pura Tanah Lot In Bali
Standing against the endless blue stretch of the ocean, bathing in the salty sea mist day in and out is the ancient Tanah lot temple of Bali. It is situated at the tip of a reconstructed piece of crumbling old rock outcropping. The Balinese people consider this temple as one of the holiest on their land. It adds to innumerable temples and contributes to the reason why Bali is called the Land of Gods.
The name Tanah Lot means ‘land in the sea’ and the temple’s position goes perfectly well with the moniker. Tanah Lot temple, Bali is inseparably intermingled with Balinese mythological history for centuries. A 16th-century Hindu Brahmin priest and explorer named Dang Hyang Nirartha is associated with the origin of this ancient temple.
Once the priest stopped at the shores of Bali at this spot and meditated on the outcropped part of a rocky edge on which the temple now stands. Later, when he was met by the local fishermen, he asked them to construct a shrine right there to pay respects to the Balinese god of the seas. The main deity inside Tanah Lot temple Bali is actually Bhatara Segara – the Sea God. Nirartha is also worshipped at Tanah Lot Temple in Bali, Indonesia.
The interiors of the temple are accessible only during low tides. While paying the entrance fee, one has to cross a string of souvenir shops selling trinkets. Non-Hindu visitors are not allowed inside the temple, but the elevated rock corridor is for everyone to walk over and get a perfect view of the ocean. Tanah Lot sunset can be enjoyed from here and the scenery is every bit worth seeing, capturing and mesmerizing. Tanah Lot temple tour in Bali introduces tourists to one of the best attractions of Bali.
