Tanah Lot Temple

Bali, Indonesia

Centuries ago, a Balinese saint chose to meditate and pray to the god of the sea from a huge rock shaped like a bird. The spot he chose, Tanah Lot Temple, still captivates religious pilgrims and tourists in Bali with stunning sunsets and its ability to transform into a floating island at high tide. It also comes with fierce protectors, sea snakes believed to guard against evil spirits and intruders.
