A visit to the former Royal Temple at Mengwi, the holy monkey forest of Alas Kedaton, then continue to see the temple sanctuary of Tanah Lot and enjoying beautiful sunset. One of the favorite temples of this tour is Tanah Lot Temple.

Tanah Lot Temple
Located at the southest of Tabanan area, a side-road branches to the sea, ending on a green hill which slopes down to the beach and to the remarkable temple of Tanah Lot, suspended on a huge rock offshore. Set apart from the land by a stone basin, the rock has been carved by incoming tides.

Tanah Lot, with its solitary black towers and tufts of foliage spilling over the cliffs, recalls the delicacy of a Chinese painting. If hearsay is to be believed, there dwells inside one of the shirnes inside one of the shrines at Tanah Lot a huge snake, discreetly left undisturbed by the Balinese.

Although a small sanctuary, Tanah Lot is linked to a series of sea temples on the south coast of Bali: Pura Sakenan, Pura Ulu Watu, Pura Rambut Siwi and Pura Petitenget. All these temples are related to the principal mountain sanctuaries: Besakih at Gunung Agung, Pura Batur at Batur and Pura Luhur at Mt. Batukaru. The upland temples venerate deities associated with mountains and mountain lakes, while the sea temples include homage to the guradian spirits of the sea within their ritual. These main temples are often listed with the sad-kahyangan the six holy "national" temples, which exact tribute from all Balinese.

The chronicles attribute the temple at Tanah Lot of the 16-century priest Nirartha. During his travles along the south coast he saw the rock-island's beautiful setting and rested there. Some fishermen saw him and bringing gifts invited him to stay at their hut. Nirartha refused, saying he preferred to spend the night on the little island. That evening he spoke to the fishing folk and advised them to build a shirne on the rock, for he felt it to be a holy and fitting place to worship God. The villagers kept their promise.

The beaches of Tanah Lot are ideal for relaxing, especially in the late afternoons when the temple on the rock dissolves into a striking silhouette against the evening sky.

Sacred Monkey Forest
The monkey forest is a cluster of towering trees and home of hundreds of sprite monkeys. The forest is sacred and for many years no one has been permitted to chop wood there. A moss-covered temple lies in the heart of the woods and is a familiar hideout for the nimble inhabitants. You make many friends by buying a bag of peanuts and for such a feast the monkeys often bring their families along. Rumor tells of a king of the monkeys who invariably has the first choice in selecting peanut handouts. He oversees one camp, while a rival king and his followers control another area of the forest.
