This month’s top Bali photo comes from our most recent Bali photo Tour and their excursion to Tanah Lot temple. Instead of featuring the temple itself, we framed the spectacular sunset with the arched jetty that leads out to a smaller temple just north of the main temple.
This is also an excellent surf spot that is surprisingly very rarely crowded and we usually have the whole break to ourselves. With surroundings like this, its hard to ask for anything more (OK, maybe an ice- cold Bintang once we get out of the water).
Pura Tanah Lot is in Bali’s Tabanan Regency on the island’s west coast. It is considered by most to be one of the big three sacred temples of Bali. Pura Tanah Lot is actually an island onto itself. This important pilgrimage site is built upon a rock and reef outcropping in the ocean. It is possible to walk or wade to the temple at low tide.
Tanah Lot is one of the important seven sea temples of Bali and certainly one of the most picturesque. These seven temples were built around the island to protect it, and to be used as a signaling device as each temple is built within eyeshot from the last forming a visual chain around the South Western coast of Bali.
