Related about development history of Tanah Lot Bali sea temple is closely associated to the sacred journey (Tirta Yatra) from a Hindu priest named "Danghyang Nirartha / Danghyang Dwijendra",

While he was in Bali island, he is also often called by the name of "Ida Pedanda Sakti Wawu Rauh",

when he arrived in Lombok, also known as "Tuan Semeru" (Semeru: is a name of mountain located in East Java).

This is all as written in the inscription of "Dwijendra Tattwa", and when he came to Bali island at that time Bali is being ruled by the King of "Sri Dalem Waturenggong" with central government located in Gelgel (Klungkung regency), around the year 1411 AD or year saka 1489.

In addition to do "Tirta yatra" (holy journey), he is also well-known in the spreading of Hinduism by performing "Dharma Yatra" (dharma journey).

In his missionary journey, Danghyang Nirartha has spread Dharma teachings throughout Bali island, as well as recorded with the existence of many temples that have been built to raise spiritual awareness through Hinduism teachings.

This was also emphasized, on an occasion when he performed Dharma yatra in "Rambut Siwi Temple" (West Bali), then he saw a sacred light from southeast side and he followed it till it ended to the source which turned out to be a spring.

And not far from these sources spring, he finally found a very beautiful place called "Gili Beo" (Gili means "Stone like an island" and Beo means of "Bird"),

So Gili Beo is a big rock shaped like "Bird Beo" and here is where finally he built a place to meditate and pray to the "God of Sea (Varuna)".

From this place finally Danghyang Nirartha began to spread Hinduism teachings to the community around Beraban village, where at that time Beraban village is being led by "Ki Bendesa Beraban Sakti".

It is also mentioned that at the time all Beraban inhabitants still adhered to "Monotheism" doctrine, and in the shortest time all the followers of Bendesa Beraban Sakti began to abandon the monotheistic teachings and become Danghyang Nirartha's followers to understand more about Hindu teachings.

Because of this matter, finally Ki Bendesa Beraban Sakti start blaming Danghyang Nirartha and Ki Beraban Sakti began to gather some of his faithful followers to drive-out Danghyang Nirartha from Beraban village.

With the spiritual power possessed Danghyang Nirartha, he finally protects himself from the attack of Ki Bendesa Beraban Sakti by moving the large rock (sea rock that he uses to meditate into the sea, and creating many snakes with his scarf which contained around the rocks as guardian of the place).

In the end Ki Bendesa Beraban Sakti acknowledged the supernatural and spiritual power of Danghyang Nirartha, finally Ki Bendesa Beraban Sakti eventually became his followers.

After some time before he went on to do Dharma Yatra, Danghyang Nirartha also gave the Holy Keris known as "Ki Baru Gajah" to the leader of Ki Bendesa Beraban Sakti, and until now holy keris Ki Baru Gajah is stored neatly in "Puri Kediri" (Kediri palace).

This holy keris heritage is very sacred by everyone which also purified through the ritual ceremony that held every "Kuningan day" by holding the heirloom while walking about 11 kilometers to "Pakendungan temple" located about 300 meters from "Tanah Lot temple".

While the ceremony at Tanah Lot temple held every 210 days (6 months), precisely on the day of "Buda Wage Langkir" in Balinese calendar.

Regarding meaning of Tanah Lot word itself, comes from uric word:of Tanah means: "Piece of Land" and Lot or Let "Hard / Strong / Powerful".

So literally, Tanah Lot means: a holy place that built and standing upright on a large sea rock at south coast.
