Pura Lingsar

Jl. Gora 2, Mataram, Lingsar, Kabupaten Lombok Barat, Nusa Tenggara Bar. 83237, Indonesia

If you’ve visited temples in Bali, Pura Lingsar, the largest and most important temple in Lombok, may look familiar. The Hindu temple here, Pura Gaduh, has four shrines, including ones associated with the holy mountains of Gunung Agung on Bali and Gunung Rinjani on Lombok. This holy site embodies not only the cultural connections between Bali and Lombok but also the multifaith nature of Lombok. In addition to the Hindu temple, there is an Islamic mosque in the complex. Both men and women will need to rent or bring a sarong to enter, and revealing clothes are not allowed. A visit here is a delight for the eyes along with other senses as you wander among the jasmine, fruit, flowers and incense sticks left as offerings.
