Pura Meru is part of Taman Mayura in Mataram and comprises the biggest Hindu temple on the island with the shrines of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh along with the religious textbook Bhagwat Geeta kept in one of the shrines. The place has history that resonates with Hindu culture and mythology if you are aware of it. For example, why this... More

Total waste of time with usual rip off for the sashes (20000 INR) to wear depite in the end the place feeling completely abandoned. Basically the 3 shrines for the 3 gods as described in all the literature but they are semi abandoned with no adornment as are the small shrines around. Simply nothing of note to see.

This is the biggest temple in Lombok and a big disappointment. If you like temples then I recommend Bali. We went as we were at a loose end. We were show around by a guide and then asked for 200,000 irp before we could leave. He stopped us before getting back to the entrance and asked us for money where... More

Interesting merus (towers), but the deities were all missing on the day we visited. Very interesting for those interested in Hinduism and/or the religious history of Lombok. Others may choose to skip this one.

This temple is quite nice and its opposite to the mayura garden, so you can visit both if them together as we did... I guess 20k is quite a lot for 3 courtyard temple with nothing so unique inside, but well, there are not many sites in mataram, so guess this one is worth the visit

Go if you really love to see ancient temples & eager to learn on cultures & religions. Generally a large temple with lots of empty ground, so you can stroll and take your time here.

it's really nothing to see.. you're forced to pay 20k for each person as donation for admission.. the money is not the big deal.. what matters is why do you have a "price tag" for a donation?? that doesn't sound right for me.. disappointed.. my personal advice: if you're really into temple.. go visit pura lingsar.. but beware for people...
