It is one of oldest candi in East Java built in the 7th century to give respect to Risi Agastya. There is not much left now, but the energy is rather strong here. Badut comes from Sanskrit word Bya-dhut, which is connected to the Canopus star, the beam of Canopus star, the beam of Agastya.

That said, this temple is located pretty close to Malang's city centre, only 5 km away. I used Waze app to get there, but somehow the temple was quite difficult to find. I had to go back and forth on the same street only to realise that the temple was kinda tucked away behind housing complex. The road led to the temple was rocky and in poor condition. No parking space so you just park your ride (I rode motorbike) under the shade from the factory-like building next to the temple area. I visited the temple on a Sunday afternoon and there was no guard there, only a book where you state who you are and when you visit the temple. First thing I noticed was how well taken care of the garden was. However, the info board was not (as you can see on my photo). I read the info about the temple on National Library website. Info such as the temple was found in 1923 and the restoration took place in 1925-1926, the temple also known as Liswa Temple, and archaeologists thought that the temple was built around 760 under the order of King Gajayana (or also known as The Liswa, thus the temple's another name) from Kanjuruhan Kingdom. The temple itself is well-preserved, minus the roof, and it has lingga and yoni in situ. You can also see the carvings on the temple's walls although only fragments. The low point though, so many vandalism acts on the temple’s walls and floors, even on its in situ lingga. I hope people would care more about their heritage and not damaging the temple.
