The TANAH LOT Story

Tanah Lot is possibly the most famous temple in Bali, and certainly the most venerated of the Seven sea temples. It sits on a large offshore rock that has been shaped over the centuries by the ocean tide. To get to the Tanah Lot rock you will need to walk on the seabed during a low tide, but to enter the temple you will need to be Balinese, as this most sacred pura is inaccessible by nonlocals.

The legend says that the famous Hindi traveler and religious figure Dang Hyang Nirartha saw the island first and decided to rest there. He was found by fishermen in the morning after, who brought him gifts, and he told them to build a shrine on the island, for it would be the most sacred place to worship the sea gods. Before leaving, he protected the temple from evil spirits, intruders, and thieves with snakes: many venomous sea snakes in the ocean at the base of the rock, and a giant snake, hidden somewhere, to be released in times of grave danger.

We made the "Tanah Lot" bracelet to reflect the beauty of this place, but also the strength of the rock on which it is sitting, carved in time by the ocean but still standing strong. We chose bold colors, the deep sapphire blue of the ocean and the vibrant gold of the sun, to shine in all occasion, but especially to gleam at sunset.
