Day 1: Airport / Tour / Senggigi (BL)
Upon arrival at the airport you will be met by one of our experience guide in the arrivals hall and privately transferred to Mayura Temple. In Sanskrit, Mayura means Peacock. The park built by Anak Agung Ngurah Karangasem in 1744 was originally named Taman Kalepug which means the sound of water fall in the lake. The name of this park turned into mayura because at that time many snakes in this park area. To reduce snake populations, they decided to bring in peacocks from the Palembang area to eat the snake. Now peacocks are no longer there, all that remains is the reliefs of the Peacock that increasingly convince that the legend of snakes and peacocks exist. Afterward, short drive to Pura meru, the largest of Hindu temple in Lombok. This temple built in 1720; it’s dedicated to the Hindu trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. We will be invited to surround the 3 temples contained here. The three temples also represent three mountains considered sacred by Hindus; Pura Brahma represents Gunung Agung in Bali, Shiva Temple representing Mount Rinjani in Lombok, and Pura Wishnu which is represented by Mount Semeru in East Java. After Meru temple, our journey continues with 1 hour drive to Narmada Garden. Narmada Park was built by Raja Anak Agung Ngurah Karangasem in 1727 AD. The name of this park is taken from a sacred river in India, the river Narmanadi. This park is made as a miniature of Mount Rinjani and Lake Segara Anak. The last destination before your hotel transfer is a Lingsar temple. This temple was built in 1714 and rebuilt in 1878 to symbolize the harmony and unity between Balinese Hindus and Sasak Muslims. In the temple area there are four main buildings, namely Pura Gaduh, Kemaliq, Pesiraman and persimbangan Bhatara Bagus Balian, and Lingsar Wulon. The Pura Lingsar, is a Hindu holy place where the Hindus and Moslem come to do their respective religious rituals. For example, Some Moslem are frequently take a pray at Kemalik building and no Hindus have ever been offended by it. Afterward drive to Senggigi for your accommodation.
