There are quite a number of ancient ruins in the area around the highland town of Malang. Easily the pick of them is this one, Candi Singosari. There were seven kings of the Singosari Dynasty, a short, ill-fated line who ruled East Java during the...More

It is easy to find this candi as it is on the main road. The candi itself looks like relatively well preserved. But the whole Singosari complex has been separated. This candi was built to keep the ash of Kertanegara, the last king of Singosari....More

It isn't close or cheap to get there, so if you're not a big religion or temple buff, I might suggest not making the trek. The big statue guys are about 200 meters down the street from the main part of the temple. Make sure...More

This ancient temple site, although small, seems to be a central part of the city, although attracts few tourists. Beautiful carvings in the stone work depicting tales of the times.

Lovely temple tucked in amongst the hustle and bustle of Malang. You would never know it was there! Really beautifully kept within a walled enclosure with neatly manicured garden and sympathetically placed ruins of what was once a grand temple. Some relics are well preserved...More

This ruin isn't very large, but it has a few impressive statues with some nice detail, and the temple itself is fun to climb and explore. It's worth the trip out from Malang or Surabaya if you're at all interested in the temples or art...More
