Pura Meru was built in 1720 and dedicated to Hindu Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu & Shiva. It is a very nice place for photography. No restaurant or stall nearby. Also need to pay for parking fee - 3,000 rupiah. Entrance fee - 6,000 rupiah.

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.
