As one of Bali’s many sea temples that are meant to honor the Gods and Goddesses of the ocean, this is a sacred site that is revered by many Balinese Hindus.
The name Pura Tanah Lot means ‘temple of the sea and the earth’, and once there it is easy to see why. The temple was built on top of jagged rocks ust off the coast, and it is only accessible at low tide, when a footpath appears along the sand and out to the rocks Inside, there are two pavilions and two shrines with a 7-tiered meru and a 3-tiered meru.
Locals believe that the temple is protected by small poisonous black and white sea snakes as well as one giant snake, all of which were originally Niratha’s sashes that fell into the sea when he left the sacred spot.
