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

Maybe you've seen the picture of this temple on lonely planet :) well it's not that big, but it's worth seeing. Candi singosari (Singosari temple) is located around 20 mins from malang. You can reach it by public transportation, you will stop in front of the entrance alley of singosari temple and still have to walk around one kilo to... More

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.

it will bring you back to hundreds years ago! Witness the history of Javanese Kingdom, Singosari. The candi is surrounded with houses, and it just pop out in the middle of that, such a contradictory view.

I happened to arrive when a school group was touring, and I know now what it must feel like to be a celebrity mobbed by the paparazzi! After I pried myself away I explored the Candi, which somehow made me feel very peaceful and calm. I can understand how this could possibly have been a place of refuge and comfort... More

The candis around Malang are in lovely gardens and you can roam around without being disturbed by sellers, guides, etc.
