Pura Batu Bolong
Holiday Travel Guide

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

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

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

Look for the empty chair that represents the Hindu god, Brahma. According to legend, virgins were once sacrificed to the sea from the outermost rock. Hindu festivals and ceremonies are still held monthly in accordance with the moon cycles.

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

From modest family-run hotels to five-star resorts, Senggigi Beach offers a full range of accommodation options and is the perfect base from which to explore Lombok’s premier attractions. Batu Bolong Temple and Senggigi Beach are less than an hour’s drive from Lombok’s international airport. There is also an express boat service from Bali.
