Don't bother. There is not much to see here. Carry on.

Unless you are completely out of your options and bored out of your mind, or else you can just let this one pass. You won't miss much. A hindu structure that is worn and torn with... read more

The site is poorly maintained despite visitors having to pay an entrance fee. While it has historical significance to the island, there is not much in it. The guide is a real put-off. He constantly talks about making a donation (no receipt) and at the end of it asked for tips for himself and 'extorted' a donation for the temple,... More

Unless you are completely out of your options and bored out of your mind, or else you can just let this one pass. You won't miss much. A hindu structure that is worn and torn with a big dirty pool in the middle. That is literally it. The ticket will set you back $1 USD so it is not that... More

When you read water and temple one gets excited, usually for good reason. The guide tried his best but was only helping out.The history is interesting but the site is run down, hence the cheapness of getting in. When I saw pedalled in the water I couldn't take the place seriously. Not the best.

While the story behind the palace is intriguing and symbolizes Lombok's history as well as recognizing all religions contribute to a society - it looks like it has fallen into disrepair. The guide (who seemed to be on auto pilot and droned away at us) was a returned 'lombokian' from other parts of the world. He failed to bring to... More

this water palace.. nothing much also~! originally I don't even feel like commenting.. but I feel like I have the responsibility to warn others.. just look out for my photos.. that's basically all of it.. and most importantly you have to DONATE 20k for admission..

This palace is very rundown and quite a lot of rubbish in the lake. You do need to pay a guide to take you around and the photos you'll get have the modern commercial shops in the background. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle for a short while, could be place to come.

After enjoying ourselves at the Gilis, Rinjani we came to Sengiggi. We started to feel a bit guilty about not getting out and seeing the cultural side of the island so booked a tour that stopped in a few places and temples including this one. All nice enough, but there are a lot of temples in Asia and these ones... More

Place is beautiful but the local guide was horrible. After buying our tickets, a man presented himself as our guide. Many of the places are blocked off and only accessible by following the guide. We were advised to provide donations for entering the temples and the crazy bit was that he started hinting that many of the other tourists donated... More
