The Sasak people are the original inhabitants and nowadays still the largest ethnic group of Lombok. During the Sasak traditional tour you experience their way of living and their handcrafts. You get an insight into their religion as well, since we will be visiting temples.
LINGSAR TEMPLE :
This beautiful temple is the holiest place in lombok, built in 1759 for the king of the Balinese kingdom of Karangsem. Unique in the fact that three religions are being practised in one complex: Hinduism, Islam and Wektu Telu. Famous for a sacred pool, home to a family of eels who can be lured out of their hiding places with hard-boiled eggs!
The Sukarara inhabitants are reknowned for their weaving skills. See the village women creating exquisite Songket fabrics on their traditional looms as they have done for generations.
Penujak is a village that is famous for its original clay pottery. See the villagers at work designing the pots using simple tools and methods.
