This site offers a unique testimonial to the Singosari and Majapahit civilisations; its construction spanned 250 years (from 1200 to the mid-15C). Surrounded by coconut trees at an altitude of 450m, the complex features three courtyards surrounded by a wall. In the first, remark the small Candi Ganesh; the second pays homage to Naga, the mythological serpent, and, in the third and most sacred courtyard are exceptional bas-reliefs illustrating the Ramayana and Krisnayana, around the main temple.
