Fodor's Expert Review Pura Lingsar


The holiest temple complex in Lombok, built in 1714 by King Anak Agung Ngurah, Pura Lingsar includes a temple for Hindus as well as one for Wetu Telu, Lombok's Islamic religion. In the Wetu Telu temple, you'll find a pond filled with holy eels; if you so desire, you can buy hard-boiled eggs from a stall to tempt them, as feeding them is supposed to bring good luck. You'll need to rent a sash and/or sarong to enter if you don't have your own. Pura Lingsar is located on the outskirts of Mataram.
