The capital city of Lombok and West Nusa Tenggara province is a collection of several villages that have all grown together. Mataram has a largely Sasak Muslim population but still has relics of an ancient Hindu culture. Located on the central west coast of Lombok, about an hour east of Lombok International Airport, Mataram serves as a central hub — there’s a bus station and the port is south of town. It’s also a place to find services and goods in a quasi-metropolitan setting that is non-existent in the rest of Lombok.
