Tanah Lot

Located on the south west coast, Tanah Lot is possibly the best known and most photographed temple in Bali. The pagodalike temple sits on a small, rocky islet, surrounded by water at high tide and otherwise accessible by a ramp. Despite the commercialism, few sights compare with the dramatic view of the sun dropping behind the ocean and silhouetting the temple which is venerated as a holy site believed to be guarded snakes.
