Tanah Lot Temple at sunset

Often visited as part of a whole day or half day tour, this beautiful temple is best visited at sunset as you can see from the photo above.

The sun drops behind the horizon and sets the temple in a beautiful silhouette, particularly if you walk away from the madding crowds near the base and walk along the beach a little.

It is a Hindu temple, one of many on this incredibly devotional island, and is probably the most stunning from a visual perspective.

You can see the holy snake that lives in a cave under a rock and is lit up by a man with a torch, but it isn't possible to enter the temple building itself.

It is located on the South Western corner of the island and is perched on a rocky outcrop which has been eroded by the sea over the years.

In the 1980s, the Japanese government provided approximately $130 million for restoration of the temple.
