This is very precious herritage yet ill managed. It needs more serious attention by the government to provide better information and to build awareness of visitors.

Candi Singosari is the funerary temple of Kertanegara, the last king of the Singhasari kingdom. Today it is surrounded by houses, although it has a spacious lawn of its own. The facade had three arch-shaped doorways, the middle one leads to the inner chamber. A side niche contains a statue in situ. The kala on the top were finished well,... More

Candi ini memang sangat menarik. The carvings are interesting and it is still used by local hindus as a site of worship. The grounds are well-kept. The main problem is it is right next to a main road so it is quite noisy and not very relaxing to walk around and appreciate the beauty of the place.

This temple is reachable by car, only 1km from the main road between malang and surabaya. Located in the middle of residential area in small village, clean temple area. You can take a photo and also explore this site, since not really popular

Built to honour the last & greatest king of the Singosari Dynasty, Kertanegara. King Kertanegara is famed in modern times for insulting a great figure in Asian, Middle Eastern, Persian & European history, the Mongol Kublai Khan, grandson of Genghis Khan-the most ruthless ruler the human race has ever known. Kertanegara had refused to pay the Mongol, who had just... More

This is definitely worth the trip. It should only be seen as a part of your day. The temple is small and won't take very long to see. The grounds are very beautiful. There are some areas falling apart, but the parts and stone work are being carefully preserved.

It is interesting to find a hot spring and cold spring water located so close to each other. The area is very small. Unless you want to spend time in the spa next door, it is a simple historic artifact of an old era.
