Tanah Lot Temple has become an iconic feature and famous destination of Bali Island. It is perched on a large offshore rock. Tanah Lot is one of the sacred Hindu temples in Bali.
Because of its popularity, many visitors come here to enjoy the beauty of this temple. Also the unique location of this temple on a large rock is another reason why this temple never lacks visitors.
Temple de Tanah Lot is dedicated to Baruna or God of the Sea’s supernatural power, or Ida Sang Hyang Widhi with the needs to protect the ocean. On that large offshore rock, on the east side of the temple, there is one cave that has become the home of wild snakes.
One of the kinds of snakes that live there is Bungarus Candidus, which is a poisonous snake with black and white bands or rings along their bodies. The temple is sacred because of the belief from local people that the reptile is the incarnation of Dang Hyang Nirartha (a religious figure in Bali) shawl.
