Lombok Temples Tours
Lombok is home to some amazing temples, and because Lombok has its own identity, the temples are a direct reflection of this. No visit to Lombok is complete without a walk through some of the temples representing the various religious beliefs, which will allow the visitor to have a glimpse into the world of Lombok’s people. We can design a tour to take in the many and varied temples of Lombok, or to visit other attractions within the same tour. Pura Meru Temple Pura Meru is the largest and second most important Hindu temple to be found on the island of Lombok. Constructed around 1720 and dedicated to the Hindu trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. The inner court area has 33 shrines and three thatched, teak wood meru (multi-tiered shrines). The central meru, with 11 tiers, is Shiva’s house; the meru to the north, with nine tiers, is Vishnu’s; and the seven-tiered meru to the south is Brahma’s. The meru also represent three sacred mountains, Rinjani, Agung and Bromo, and the mythical Mount Meru. The caretaker will lend you a sash and sarong if you don't have your own Pura Lingsar Temple Built in 1714 by the Balinese, construction was aided by the the local Sasak Muslims, and so the temple is a combination of the Balinese Hindu faith as well as the Wektu Telu religion (this is the religion practiced by the Sasak peoples of Lombok and often combines Islam with their own blend of religion). If you wish to enter the main temple, you must wear a sash or a sarong (these can be obtained on-site for a small fee) In the northern area of the temple you will find a small pond inhabited by eels which can be enticed out by offering them hard boiled eggs which they adore.  You can purchase the eggs from local sellers at the site, and it is considered extremely good luck to have an eel take an egg from you! Narmada Temple Located 12km from Mataram City, Narmada Temple is a representation of Mount Rinjani volcano, the main feature of Lombok which is visible from across the entire island.  Built by King Anak Agung Gede Karangasem around the 1700’s, the expansive water gardens surround the King’s resting place. Narmada offers a wonderful area to wander and appreciate the very well laid out gardens full of exotic plants. A shawl is required to visit (this can be borrowed on the site) and menstuating women are not permitted inside the temple.
