Environment and humans are two variables that are interrelated and influence each other, as well as their culture and environment. The environment chosen as a place to live and the construction of religious buildings need to consider the potential and resources they have. In building sacred buildings Hindu-Buddhist religions have special consideration for the environment. Tingkip Temple is one of the temples in the Musi Rawas area. The purpose of this paper is to determine the relationship between the establishment of Tingkip temple buildings and natural resources in the Musi Rawas area. This research uses qualitative methods, with inductive reasoning, by collecting library and field data, as well as data processing by conducting environmental analysis. The results of the research show that Musi Rawas has natural potential that is suitable as a place for the establishment of sacred buildings, because it has the type of soil that is suitable for organic farming, besides being surrounded by rivers and creeks, and the vegetation around it in the form of agricultural and plantation crops. Musi Rawas natural resource potential affects the establishment of the Tingkip Temple.
