Tanah Lot is one of the important directional temples in Bali. The temple is located on a rock just offshore. It is said to be the work of revered 15th century Hindu priest Nirartha and forms an important element of Balinese spirtualism and mythology.

What I wrote about Uluwatu Temple also applies to Tanah Lot - there are way too many visitors there during high season. Expect to fight heavy traffic jams to get there - it can literally take hours from Denpasar in the afternoon so it's best...More

For what you get the price isn't really to justify! It was the most expensive temple we've visited but not worth the price. Super crowded as well. If you have to skip a temple - than it can be that one!

You might get lost. Nobody tells you where to go if you want to see the dance. But once you get there, the performance is definitely worth a watch.

Pondering spiritual guidance circa the 16th century...legend has it that wandering sage Nirartha once glimpsed a vivid etherial light emanating from a certain place near where he was communing with Nature.

The place is nice but not sure why it is so overrated and overpriced?? The only time you can visit is in the evening because it is recommended to view Sunset from here. I will suggest that you should visit for Sunrise rather than Sunset.

We visited Tanah Lot during the day on our last day in Bali. I heard that visiting at sunset is quite crazy busy, we were there about lunch time, it was busy but not unbearable. We caught a taxi to the lot, from Canggu it...More

Have not been to both but Tanah Lot is at its best at sunset. You can gauge the weather and pick a day. From what I have seen Uluwatu looks worth a visit and there are some nice seaside restaurants there. Enjoy ! Jazza

Views are good if stairs can't be climbed. You would need help though as walkways aren't smooth
