We drove for about an hour from Taman Ayun to witness sunset from Tanah Lot temple. This temple is typically known for amazing sunset view you will ever get to see. This is situated in an ocean, however they will not let you enter temple unless you are there for a prayer. Still, you can spend time on beach, walk to the temple holding your shoes in one and partner's hand in another hand, reach out to stones surrounded by water and feel the breeze of wind and water.I would recommend to go to Tanah Lot in the evening and witness the sunset.The day was little bit tiring, so we went to hotel and ordered Indian food from GRAB just like any food delivery application.
Tanah Lot: Tanah Lot means 'land in the sea', it's a rock formation off the Indonesian island of Bali. Tanah Lot is an ancient Hindu temple and is among one of the most famous destinations in Bali. It's believed to be the work of 16th century architecture and has an important place in Balinese mythology. Tanah Lot temple is one of seven sea temples around the Balinese coast. The Temple sits on a large offshore rock which has been shaped continuously over the years by the ocean tide. A perfect frame for those who love photography.
1. TANAH LOT TEMPLEAs planned, I reached there before sunrise, just at the perfect time of the golden hour moment. The tides were high and the sound of the waves was pure joy to my ears. The super religious people of Bali were there in the temple offering and praying. Bali is very rich in culture. Visiting any temple in Bali (except Uluwatu) will give you the feel of how connected they are to their religion and culture and land too. There is not very much to do here, you can roam the temple complex or sit somewhere with the view of the sea.
With the same outfits, we headed to Tannah lot, Shiva temple, a bit far from the sea which can be reached during low tide and it is allowed by only on some special occasions. The view is pretty enthralling, we spent some considerable amount of time and traveled to Ubud area to our next accommodation Uppala Villas.
And the final show down of the day was at Tanah Lot; an ancient Temple perched on a rocky outcrop in the sea off the west coast of Bali.It was raining when we reached, but that did not stopped us from walking to the base of the Temple, some 20 meters from the shore. It was restricted to visit the Temple atop for the non-Balinese.We soaked ourselves to the rain and the blessings of the Mother Nature that had inundated the place. The place offered tranquility and calmness amidst theLeft Tanah Lot with an unwilling heart.
