Without a doubt, Tanahl Lot is one of the most impressive locations for a Hindu shine. You will consider this place very beautiful as long as you are not afraid of snakes. Yes, here you will find several sea snakes, and some of them are quite deadly. The legend is that Tanah Lot was first occupied by a Hindu wanderer known as Danghyang Nirartha. He managed to build the sea temple on the rocky Balinese coast, but the local king wanted to get rid of Danghyang Nirartha. He sent orders to leave the temple and island, but before he left, Danghyang Nirartha turned his shawl into sea snakes to guard the temple. Well, it looks like the snakes are still here.
