If the prohibition is violated, the relationship with the boyfriend or girlfriend is believed not to last long. It will become not harmonious leading to be separated.

Although being difficult to prove, believe it or not, Balinese people especially young couples strongly believe in the myth. They never want to bring their partner to Tanah Lot Temple. Merely walking in the area of ​​Tanah Lot area is commonly done by young couples. “The myth does not apply to married couples,” said Jero Niti, Public Relations of Tanah Lot attraction.
