Tanah Lot is one of Bali’s most important landmarks. Its unique offshore setting provides the perfect backdrop for sunset photos. Constructed in the 16th century to honor the Hindu sea god, Baruna, Tanah Lot is one of Bali's most-visited landmarks. The best time to admire Tanah Lot Temple is at sunset. At high tide the narrow connecting strip of land is submerged and the temple is cut off from land. Watch the sun spread across the Indian Ocean and marvel at the romantic look of Tanah Lot Temple with its glowing golden outline.
