    Pura Lingsar, West Nusa Tenggara - Indonesia

    Pura Lingsar, is sacred not only to Lombok’s Hindu community, but also for local Moslem and Wektu Telu followers. Built around 1714, Pura Lingsar was originally based on the prevailing animist beliefs of the time, and some of the original animist statues remain today. This temple has two holy shrines and is the only place on Lombok where all the religions – Hindus, Buddhists, Christians and Orthodox Moslems – come together to pray for prosperity, fertility, rain, health and general success. The temple is traditionally associated with fertility, irrigation and rice. Perang Topat, is an annual festival held at Lingsar and features a ritualized war with rice cakes, which also serve as an offering to the Gods.
    Lingsar has spring-fed pools within the temple grounds and is home to large freshwater eels. Visitors are welcome to accompany a temple priest who will feed them hard-boiled eggs, purchased at nearby stands. Open during the day. Admission and eel are feeding by donation.
