Monasterio de Tanah Lot

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Tanah lot es un formación rocosa en medio del mar. Su nombre, precisamente, significa en lengua balinesa "tierra en medio del mar".

El templo de Tanah Lot se erige sobre una gran roca que ha sido formada por el embate de las olas a través de los años y se puede acceder a él justo cuando la marea está baja.

Se dice que se construyó en el siglo XV gracias a la iniciativa de una sacerdote llamado Nirartha, quien, al descubrir el islote formado por esta grandiosa roca, lo consideró un lugar sagrado en donde debían levantar un templo para rezar a los dioses

En 1980 parte del templo de Tanah Lot empezó a desmoronarse, por ello, el gobierno de Japón le hizó un préstamo al gobierno de Indonesia de 800 billones de rupias para así poder restaurarlo.


Tanah Lot is a rock formation in the sea. Its name means precisely Balinese language "land in the sea." The temple of Tanah Lot is built on a large rock that was formed by the wave embite through the years and can be accessed just as the tide is low. It is said to be built in the fifteenth century on the initiative of a priest named Nirartha, who, discovering the island formed by this great rock, considered a sacred place where they should build a temple to pray to the gods In 1980 part of the temple of Tanah Lot began to crumble, so, the Japanese government made a loan to the government of Indonesia to 800 billion rupees in order to restore it.

Vaya lugar más encantador, como llegan hasta ahí, en barca? Se me antoja complicado la construcción de algo así teniendo que transportar todos los materiales por mar. Un gran saludo!
