Tanah Lot Temple is one of Bali's most important landmarks, famed for its unique offshore setting and sunset backdrops. An ancient Hindu shrine perched on top of an outcrop amidst constantly crashing waves; Tanah Lot is simply among Bali's not-to-be-missed icons. Stunning view of Indian Ocean with one of the oldest temple.This place is famous for Sunset and a rock formation just off the coast of Bali, where a temple sits on the rocks. For the Balinese people, it is one of the most sacred of all the island's sea temples so please manitain that sacredness.
