This holy temple is devoted to Ida Bhatara Segara. Balinese came to pray for safety and harmony. The name of the Batu Bolong is derived from the word "Batu" means stone/rock and "Bolong" means hollow. So Batu Bolong means the hollow stone.

There are some ancient records or "lontar" mentioning that this sacred temple is related to the journey of the holy priests namely Mpu Kuturan (in 11th century) and Dang Hyang Nirartha (in 15th century).
