Tanah Lot

Tanah Lot

Tanah Lot is without a doubt the biggest highlight of Bali that it deserves to kick off this list. It is just a temple this place but its offshore setting, location atop a cliff, the quaint yet intriguing architecture and the backdrop of sheer perfection all contribute in making the Tanah Lot a truly remarkable attraction in Bali. In fact Tanah Lot is iconic to this island and if you have been researching Bali well before your trip you would have most certainly seen a picture or two of this stunning temple. The Tanah Lot though historic, is still a highly active temple that is etched with deep rooted spirituality and to this day entertains plenty of pilgrims as it does tourists.
