Lombok Island & Beyond
Lombok is interesting not only because it marks
the beginning of the transition between
Indonesia’s Asian and Australian fauna and flora
zones – separated by what is known as the
Wallace Line, but even more because of its
alluring cultural make-up, in which various
elements are blended.
West Lombok offers a wide range of sights,
experiences and attractions, such as the
traditions and arts of the Bayan tribe, the
Narmada Park, Pura Meru, the hindu temples of
Maruya, Linsar, Mount Pengsong, Percitan,
Melanting, Suranadi, Bolong Stone, and mount
Rinjani with Segara Anakan crater lake.
In central Lombok we can still observe the old
Sasak Traditions and their ancient sites, Nyale
Beach, Batujai Dam, Handicrafts, the traditional
textiles of Sukarara traditional houses in
districts of Rambitan, and Aik Bukak.
East Lombok is know for its fishermen’s villag,
such as Tanjung Luar, the Kutaraja home
Industries, the bathing pool of Aik Kalak,
Timbunan and Tete Batu on the mountain slope of

characteristics. Lombok and the other islands of

Lombok has been called the “ sleeping Beauty” of
the region. A western visitor to Lombok once
described it as a “ sweet young maiden village’
looking at the world from the corners of her
sparkling eyes. In some respects, Lombok does
appear like Bali. This is caused by fact that at
the end of the 17th century, many Balinese
crossed over to Lombok, to stay in the vicinity
of Mataram. Some eventually moved to small towns
in the western part of the island.
As a result, there are at present two distinct
population groups on Lombok, the Sasaks and the
Balinese, each possessing its own cultural and

The ruler himself had his seat in Cakranegara.
The royal palace no longer exists, but many of
the old temples and pleasure gardens are still

Pura Meru in Cakranegara.
Dedicated to the Hindu trinity, Brahma and
Vishnu, it was built in 1720 by Anak Agung Made
Karang, which has three courtyards. Three pagoda
like places of worship stand in a line from

Kingdom is the Meru Temple at Cakranegara, close

on Lombok Island. Several structures are found
in this complex, all of them designated to
function for particular purposes, including the
33 stalls located next to the main temple.
Taman Narmada, 11 kilometers east of Mataram,
was built in 1727 by King Anak Agung Gede Ngurah
Karang Asem as both a pleasure garden and place
to worship Shiva. Its big pool is said to
represent Segara Anakan, the Crater Lake on the
volcano Rinjani where they used to make
offerings by throwing valuables into the water.
As the became too old to make the pilgrimage up
the 3,726 meter high mountain, he had Narmada
made to represent the mountains and the lake.
Near the pond is A place of worship and a spring
whose water is believed to give dedicated
pilgrims eternal youth.
This may be the only Hindu shrine in the world
where both Hindus and Moslems come to worship.
About 7 kilometers west of Narmada, it was built
in 1714 and rebuilt in 1878 to symbolize harmony
and unity between the Hindu Balinese and Moslem
Sasak population of the area, especially those
who adhere to Lombok's unique Wektu Telu school

behind the Moslem section in the compound. In
the lower yard is a spring in which pilgrims in
the temple yard stage a mock battle between
Hindus and Moslems in which troth parties hurl
rice cakes at each other.
