The story goes that during his travel along the south coast, he saw the rock-island’s beautiful setting and rested there. Some fishermen saw him, and bought him gifts. Nirartha then spent the night on the little island. Later he spoke to the fishermen and told them to build shrine on the rock for he felt it to be a holy place to worship the Balinese sea Gods.

The Tanah lot temple was then built and has been an important part of Balinese mythological history for centuries. The temple is one of the seven sea temples around Balinese coast. It was said that each of the sea temple was to be within eyesight of the next so that they formed a chain along the south-western coast. At the base of the rocky island, poisonous sea snakes are believed to guard the temple from evil spirit and intruders. There is said to be one giant snake which also protects the temple. It is believed that this snake was created from Niratha’s scarf when established the island.
