This popular religious landmark is built on a giant rock in the ocean about 984 feet (300 m) offshore and is Bali’s most famous, and certainly most photographed, Hindu temple. If you can navigate your way through busloads of tourists and an army of hawker stands, you’ll be treated to iconic sunset photos. Tanah Lot is 12.4 miles (20 kms) northwest of Denpasar, in the Beraban village of the Tabanan Regency. One of seven sea temples along the Bali coast, it was originally constructed in the 16th century but has seen significant restoration in recent times. The temple can be reached via the bridge at low tide, but inside access is not permitted to non-Hindu visitors.
