INDONESIA, Bali – Both a spiritual bulwark for warding off bad energy of the crashing waves and a cultural icon of the seven coastal temples of Bali, Tanah Lot is one temple that draws in droves of people all year round.
With its unique rock formation and the beautiful sunsets that dye the distant horizon orange, Tanah Lot is truly a picturesque coastal area. Beyond the large crowd of photo-taking tourists, however, is a sacred temple that occupies an important place in the Balinese culture. With folktales just as beautiful and intricate as the natural beauty that surrounds you, it’s easy to get lost in the magic of the place. Just remember to be respectful as you traverse the grounds of Tanah Lot.
