Pura Batu Bolong is a small shrine located just a stone's throw from the famous Tanah Lot temple. It is perched at the end of a rocky promontory that leaps seaward into the surging Indian Ocean. The rock underneath the temple has a natural hole that gives it its name - batu bolong (literally, 'rock with hole').
