The Management Authority for Tanah Lot in Tabanan, West Bali recorded 2,842,281 tourist visitors in 2013, a significant increase from the 2,012,500 visitors recorded in 2012.
Despite these strong results achieved for 2013, the managers of the tourism complex have created a modest target of only 2,153,375 for 2014.
Domestic visitors continue to dominate among all visitors to the iconic temple located in the ocean, a short distance from the shoreline at the Pan Pacific Nirwana Resort.
The manager of the Tanah Lot Complex, Ketut Toya Adnyana reports that the total income generated by visitors in 2013 totaled Rp. 33,519,717,827 (US$2.68 million) - an increase of 24.26% over the income achieved in 2012.
Adnyana said the windfall in admission charges would be used to improve facilities and services to complex visitors. The complex is plagued by a lack of parking facilities and pedestrian walkways, both of which are targeted for improvement.
Targeted revenues for 2014 are put at Rp. 40,660,000,000 (US$3.25 million).
