Tanah Lot is the name of a rock formation off Bali island, Indonesia. It is the location of the pilgrimage temple called “Pura Tanah Lot”(“pura” is a Balinese word that means temple. While “Tanah” means land). Tanah Lot is a well-known tourist and cultural icon for photography and exoticism. It is located in Tabanan regency, approximately 20 kilometres (12 mills) from Denpasar city. The temple itself is located exactly on a large offshore rock which has been shaped continuously over the years by the Indian ocean tide. Considering its location, the sunset panorama in Tanah Lot is very wonderful indeed. Thus, it is highly recommended to visit it during clear sunset time.
Tanah Lot is claimed to be the work of a Hindu priest of the 16th-century whose name is Dang Hyang Nirartha. During his journeys along the southern coast of Bali island he saw the wonderful setting of rock and rested there. Some fishermen saw him, and gave him some gifts. Nirartha then spent the night on the little island. Later he spoke to the fishermen and told them to build a shrine on the rock, because he felt it to be a holy place to worship the Balinese sea gods. The main deity of the temple is “Dewa Baruna” or “Bhatara Segara”, who is the sea god or sea power and these days, Nirartha is also worshipped here.
The Tanah Lot temple has been a part of Balinese mythology for many centuries. The temple is one of the seven sea temples around coastal areas of Bali island. Every sea temple was founded within eyesight of the next to form a chain along the south-western coast. The influence of Hinduism is very obviously seen in the temple. At the base of the rocky island, poisonous sea snakes are believed to guard the temple from evil spirits and intruders. The temple is believed to be protected by a giant snake, which was created from Nirartha’s “selendang” (“selendang” is a kind of sash) when he founded the temple in the rocky island.
In 1980, the temple and the rocky island were starting to fall into pieces and the area around and inside the temple started to be dangerous. Then the Japanese government gave a loan to the Indonesian government of IDR 800 billion (about US$130 million) to conserve the historical temple and other significant locations all over Bali. Therefore, over one third of Tanah Lot’s “rock” is actually cleverly disguised artificial rock created during the Japanese-funded and supervised renovation and stabilization program.
Nowadays the area leading to Tanah Lot is highly commercialized. To reach the temple from the parking area, visitors must walk through a set of Balinese souvenir shops which cover each side of the path that goes down to the sea. On a mainland of cliff tops, restaurants have also been provided for tourists. Not far from Tanah Lot temple, there is a temple called “Pura Batu Bolong”, another temple in Tanah Lot area, located within a short distance north of Tanah Lot temple.
