Tanah Lot Temple History is supposedly related to the journey of Dang Hyang Nirartha.

He was also known as Pedanda Shakti Wawu Rauh or Dang Hyang Dwijendra, a holy priest from Java Island who wandered to spread the teachings of Hinduism around Bali in 15th Century.

Base on Dwijendra Tatwa, an ancient Balinese book which contained the journey of Dang Hyang Niratha from Java to Bali.

That was narrated when the priest made a long journey in Bali and he stopped at big coral rock on coast of Beraban Village.

The rock was called as “Gili Beo” that means a small island resembled “Beo Bird”.

He did meditating on the rock. However, Bendesa Beraban Sakti, a village leader came and wanted to evict him.

That was because the leader strongly opposed the teaching by Dang Hyang Nirartha.

Then told that the priest moved the coral rock (where he meditated) from land to sea.

Saw that, the leader and the villagers were amazed by priest’s supernatural power. Then, they acknowledged and also decided to become a follower of the priest.

On the rock, he was built a temple which as a place to worship Ida Sang Hyang Widhi (the god). Until, it is well-known “Tanah Lot” that means the rock in the middle of sea.
