Beautiful sunset at Tanah Lot

Tanah Lot is a Hindu temple located in the Beraban village northwest of Kuta. It means "Land on Sea". It's believed that a priest came to this area to propagate Hinduism, he liked this beautiful setting and built a site honoring the Sea God. He started preaching the villagers which was opposed by the village chief. The priest resisted, started meditation on the rock on sea and turned his sashes to sea snakes to guard its base. The village chief acknowledged the priest's powers and in turn priest gifted him a holy dagger. It is believed that still there are sea snakes in the crevices at the base of the temple guarding the place against evil spirits.
