Silversea Luxury Cruises A Lembar, Lombok

Lembar, Lombok

An island of startling contradictions and contrasts, Lombok exudes an aura of the staid and the rural, a genteel way of life in a quiet backwater. Located to the east and across a deep strait from its illustrious neighbor Bali, the island of Lombok offers unique culture, beautiful landscapes and a far less frenetic, pressured atmosphere than Bali. However, savvy travelers agree that Lombok’s calm existence may soon come to an end, as it is fast becoming the new "in place" after Bali. View more

The island was once ruled by a series of Sasak princes who spent their time fending off successive invasions from Sumbawanese and Makassarese attackers. In 1740, the Balinese established a stronghold here and imposed their culture on the Sasaks. Later, Lombok came under Dutch rule until the country achieved independence. The western part of the almost circular island is well irrigated by mountain streams and artesian springs. Here Balinese and Sasaks have sculpted handsome rice terraces; Hindu temples vie for attention with glistening white mosques rising from picturesque rural villages. More dramatic is the southern coast with beautiful sandy bays set between rocky outcrops. Most of Lombok’s attractions are concentrated in the western district of the island, within a nine-mile radius of the capital, Mataram. Members of Lombok's polyglot population - Sasak, Balinese, Chinese and Arab - continue their laid-back, traditional ways.

One of Lombok's religious and historical buildings, it was originally known as the 'Garden Palace of Kelepug', a name derived from the 'kelepug' sound that emerged when the swift water discharged from springs in the middle of the park's pond. The Mayura Water Park emotes a peaceful, natural, religious and historical aura. The palace is equipped with a pool, arranged in a way that looks like a beautiful garden. Although the Mayura Water Park was designed with Balinese and Javanese influences, it also imparts a nuanced religious feel. In some special rituals, the temple still functions as a place of worship of the Gods.


Downtown Mataram and NTB Museum

Next, re-board your coach and continue on to downtown Mataram, the capital city of Lombok, for a visit to the NTB Museum.

In addition, see dolls dressed in traditional Sasak, Mbojo and Samawa garb, part of the culture of the Province.

Lingsar Temple and Eel-Feeding

Lombok's most important religious site, the Lingsar Temple was built in 1714 by Balinese Hindus when they first visited Lombok; however, the Lingsar Temple is not a purely Hindu temple. It represents a blending of the Hindu tradition with Wektu Telu, a religion practiced by the Sasak people, natives of Lombok.
