The Lingsar temple, is among the most important holy places in Nusa Tenggara, is an emblem of island unity. Built in 1714 by Balinese Hindus, the northern section at Lingsar is dedicated to Hindu worship. The southern part is where Wetu Telu is performed among Lombok's native Sasak people. It is worth visiting for its beauty but also for feeding eels some eggs. This somewhat strange tradition exists because locals think the eels represent the Hindu God and giving them eggs, bless you.
The Perang Topat Temple Festival takes place in Lingsar in mid-December. It's an event worth witnessing. The celebrations consist of a lavish costume parade accompanied by a mock battle between the Hindus and the Wetu Telu, where they express some unsolved grievances by peeling each other with sticky rice balls.
