One of Bali´s most famous sea temples, Tanah Lot, is built on top of a huge rock which is surrounded by the sea. Poisonous sea snakes that have been found at the base of the rocky island are believed to guard the temple from evil spirits and intruders. The temple is situated on a crag in the sea close to the shore. On the footpath it can only be reached at low tide without getting wet.
Travelers can reach the temple from the beach after a 50-meter long corridor of smoothed stones and fine dark sand. Once arrived at the small island there is a short ascent towards the temple, where a gate barred the entrance to the temple. The temple can be entered only by believers. Tanah Lot is most popular in the late afternoon when the temple is silhouetted in the sunset.
