Walk with Cham at Tanah Lot  Batu Bolong Temple Bali Indonesia

Batu Bolong Temple

Visiting Tanah Lot was on top of my Bali list since it is one of the famous tourist attractions in the area so I scheduled it on our very first day (during sunset as it is said to have the best view). However due to time constraints we moved it on our last day instead. Unfortunately, I recently found out that the Tanah Lot we visited was not the actual Tanah Lot! It was Batu Bolong Temple. FAIL! But it was not a total disappointment though...

Batu Bolong Temple is a small shrine situated a short distance north of the famous Tanah Lot temple. It is a temple that was built on a rocky promontory that is said to protect Tanah Lot.

Entrance fee worth Rp 30,000 (P104)

Instantly feel in love with this view <3

And because we had no idea that it was a different landmark, we took some time snapping away with our cameras.

Batu Bolong is quite interesting and unique for its natural bridge that connects the mainland to the temple.

The small natural archway/hole also makes this site remarkable.

Non Hindus are not allowed to enter the gate

So to not make the same mistake as we did. You have to walk a few meters south of Batu Bolong to see the actual Tanah Lot.

Walk a few meters from Batu Bolong and you'll see Tanah Lot

Pura Batu Bolong is a site that has its own allure, it was quite underrated if I may say. When visiting Tanah Lot may this post remind you to visit Batu Bolong Temple as well.

Ps. Try to go here during sunset :)
