Tanah Lot during the sunset


The Tanah Lot Temple built in the 16th century, on offshore rock formation. The island rocks and cliffs surrounding the temple have been continuously shaped by the ocean waves, which result in its the splendid view of the seaside.

It’s amazing during the sunset, we’re told. So before the start of the evening, we were already on our way to Tanah Lot. After giving us the brief on Tanah Lot (the Tanah Lot Temple is more elaborately explained by Wikipedia), Made the private driver dropped us at the entrance of the area, where we walked along the main road, in between coffee shops and stores (this part of Tanah Lot is super commercialized, but just move along).

We could have walked to the temple, but the tide at the time was rough that we could have been swept away into the ocean! So we headed towards the best viewing spots and got our seats just before the crowd who came just for the sunset filled the area.



The view was unreal. It amazing and it gave me a sense of tranquility. We moved from one spot to another as the sun was setting to get different views of the temples and the cliffs, completely forgetting to take pictures of the setting sun.


Please give Tanah Lot a go! It might just blow your mind. Entrance fee is only 65,000 (about RM20), inclusive of parking.
