Exploring Bali: Pura Tanah Lot

A popular tourist and cultural spot, the temples beauty rests in its positioning on an offshore rock, Tanah Lot, beautifully shaped by the sea. Pura Tanah Lot (Tanah Lot Temple) has been part of Balinese mythology for years.  One of seven sea temples on the Island of Bali, the shrine is said to have been built under the guidance of Dang Hyang Nirartha who felt the place was holy and therefore a good place to worship the sea gods.  According to mythology, venomous sea snakes surround the temple, guarding it from evil spirits and intruders.
