Tanah Lot Sunset Temeple

At high tide, Tanah Lot, a rock formation with a temple (pura) on top, looks like a ship made of stone. One of seven ocean temples along the southwest coast of Bali, Pura Tanah Lot was built around the 16th century to honor the spirits of the sea. According to Balinese mythology, a Brahmin priest named Niratha established the temple and protected it from evil by taking off his sashes and throwing them into the sea. The sashes, says the myth, transformed into sea snakes.
