“Beautiful sunset with views of Bali on a clear day”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Nice Balines temple at the road side between Ampenan and Senggigi. The sunsets from there are usually great and due to the Absence of crowds and horrible shops much more enjoyable than in Tanah Lot/Bali.

“Improvements under way”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

A Hindu temple on the edge of a small cliff. A bit scared as pack of dogs outside with fighting wounds. Small statues

“A bit disappointing”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

We had just been to Bali, so to be fair had been spoilt for choice for beautiful temples. This one wasn't that special other than that it was on the beach and pleasant to take a few photos at sunset. You are kind of required to donate 10,000 rupiah, which while not a lot of money and of course they need to preserve these things, did seem a bit strange as no other temples I'd come across had required you to donate, sign in the book and wear a coloured sash around your waist.

“Money Grubbing at Batu Bolong”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

If the people of Pura Batu Bolong want to increase tourism they are going the wrong way about it.

Over my many years of travelling to Indonesia I have visited hundreds of temples. Most of temples are either free or else they have a donation box outside of the temple, usually in that case I'll put in a 10.000 note.

But at Pura Batu Bolong the moment we stepped off the beach and onto the steps near the temple we were hassled by a temple guard to pay up. His manner was not at all deferential or remotely religious, he just hell bent on getting into our wallets. I fully appreciate that we are rich bule's and they are poor but I've never experienced such an overt money grubbing attitude like this guard, he really turned us off.

The temple is really nice and interesting, 5 stars for the temple, but the temple guard's manner was absolutly disgusting. Smarten up Lombok if you want tourists to come.

“Must Visit”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Quite temple in Lombok. A must visit for photos!

You would have to wear a sort of 'scarf' around the waist to enter this temple. It is worth the while as you can take some nice photos.
