Meru temple is the largest temple in Lombok, situated in the heart of Cakranegara city, directly opposite Mayura Water Palace. This temple was built in 1970 as an attempt to unite all the small kingdoms on Lombok since this temple was built as a symbol of universe.
This temple has three courtyards; the outer courtyard houses a kukul (wooden gong) tower. The middle courtyard houses two buildings for the worshipers to retreat and for the gamelan orchestra. The inner courtyard houses 33 small shrines, a large Padmasana, and three multi-roofed Meru shrines which are dedicated to Hindu trinity, Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva.
