The rock on which Pura Tanah Lot stands looks like a beautiful creation of God but there probably is the mark of Man somewhere there, just that one would definitely not notice. And it is not the temple, the man-made structure I am talking about. The rock on which the temple stands reportedly started to crumble in 1980. To save the historic temple, the Indonesian government had to take a loan of of USD $130 million from the Japanese government. Over one third of Tanah Lot's rock now are actually man-made. While there at Pura Tanah Lot, you may want to scrutinize the rock then!
