Fodor's Review

This seaside temple perched atop a tidal islet rates high among Bali's signature sights. Built during the 15th century, Tanah Lot remains a major pilgrimage destination. A spring here supplies holy water to temples across Bali, and priests offer blessings to all. Buses converge here for the magical sunset tableau; arrive early to avoid the traffic and experience the temple, not the crowd. At most times, the 15-km (10-mile) drive north from Seminyak requires less than half an hour. A gauntlet of vendors, many of them pushy, line the paths from parking areas to the temple grounds. Adjacent Surya Mandala Cultural Park stages a kecak dance—an a cappella performance accompanied by a chanting male chorus—at 6:30 nightly. Admission to the performance is Rp50,000.
