Galungan Holiday, Tanah Lot Overwhelmed by Visitors

Galungan Holiday Tanah Lot Overwhelmed by VisitorsTanah Lot tourist attraction became the center of tourist visit during Umanis Galungan holiday, Thursday (Oct 24). In addition to local community, many travelers from outside Bali also thronged to enjoy the panoramic view as the blend of natural and historical attractions. Without exception, foreign tourists never got bored to see the Balinese traditional cultural attractions.

Operations Manager of the Tanah Lot tourist attraction, I Ketut Toya Adnyana, said that tourists usually wanted to see the ritual activity of Hindu community in Bali. Different from domestic tourists (from outside Bali), they came in the group to really enjoy the beauty of Tanah Lot, starting from the miracle of Tanah Lot, sunset to souvenirs sold at Tanah Lot.

Some tourists spent their time while lounging in the garden under the pathway heading for the area of Tanah Lot Temple. Meanwhile, some others were looking at the blue sea and the temple perched right in the middle of the sea. “Such atmosphere will usually last until next Sunday,” he said.

Although the weather was very hot and the condition was crowded, tourists were still looking happy. The security was well maintained, while traffic ran smoothly and parking service was made neatly. “When compared to the previous year, the number of tourist arrival during the Galungan of this time is more crowded,” said Ketut Toya. Based on the data obtained from the Management of Tanah Lot, the number tourist arrival on Umanis Galungan holiday in March 2013 reached 8,626 people. The number increased to 8,875 people in the Umanis Galungan of this October 2013. The figure included both domestic and foreign tourists.

Ketut Toya added that it would be more crowded in the upcoming November. It happened because it coincided with two significant ritual events at Tanah Lot. There would be temple anniversary or piodalan in the Pakendungan Temple on November 2, 2013 and in the Tanah Lot Temple on November 6-9, 2013.

Local people had made some preparations in the form of a variety of ritual paraphernalia, so that in November Tanah Lot would be thronged by Hindu pilgrims who wanted to say prayers. By all means, many visitors wished to see the worship procession. (BTN/015)
