Jutting out into Lombok Strait on a headland overlooking Senggigi Beach, sits one of Indonesia’s most striking Hindu temples.

Perched on a rockyheadland overlooking popular Senggigi Beach, Batu Bolong Temple is one ofIndonesia’s most scenic and atmospheric Hindu temples, despite its modest size.The name Batu Bolong is derived from the Indonesian words, bath (stone) andbolong (hole). The sound of wind and sea spray whistling though the cavernoushole below the site gives the area an otherworldliness and makes the site idealfor a temple. The temple faces Bali’s most sacred volcano, Gunung Agung, whichprovides a stunning backdrop at sunset.

Follow the shoreline southfrom Senggigi Beach and take the sea-ledge path that wraps around the headlandand leads to the temple. Batu Bolong Temple is still an active place ofworship, so remember to wrap yourself modestly in a sarong or sash. If youforget, one of the local children will soon be on hand to rent you asash.

Look for the empty chairthat represents the Hindu god, Brahma. According to legend, virgins were oncesacrificed to the sea from the outermost rock. Hindu festivals and ceremoniesare still held monthly in accordance with the moon cycles.

From the temple, enjoy thebroad sweep of views across Senggigi Beach, a popular destination for touristsand local residents alike. The waters are relatively calm here, making the beacha firm favourite with families. After exploring the temple complex, browseSenggigi’s Art Market or just relax in one of the many bars or restaurants thatline the beach. Be sure to stay for the fabulous sunset and then watch thelights of local fishing boats bob across the waters. It is magical!

From modest family-runhotels to five-star resorts, Senggigi Beach offers a full range ofaccommodation options and is the perfect base from which to explore Lombok’spremier attractions. Batu Bolong Temple and Senggigi Beach are less than anhour’s drive from Lombok’s international airport. There is also an express boatservice from Bali.
