The Temple of the Earth in the Sea is one of the nine most important holy temples in Bali that together represent nine cardinal directions. The temple sits on a large offshore rock which has been shaped over the years by the ocean tides. Tanah Lot is claimed to be the work of the 15th century priest Dang Hyang Nirartha. It is believed that during his travels along the south coast, the priest saw the rock island's beautiful setting and built a shrine on the rock to honour the Balinese sea gods. Today Tanah Lot is more famous for its stunning picture perfect sunsets.
