It is located in the Giri's hill of Gresik. It can be accessed by horse gig that contained about five persons or taxibike with 7.000 - 10.000 rupiahs only. After that we have to climb to the mosque and tomb of Giri. In that place provided shopping area that sell many souvenirs.

Java was one of the last parts of the Islamic world to convert to the religion. This process began in earnest in the 15th century when a few North Coast sultanates converted to the new religion, cutting off the coastal trading ports of the mountainous Hindu-Buddhist interior.
