Top Temples List in East Java that you need to Visit here if talking about Malang Tourism Center
The Keraton of Singasari Temples
Situated 12 kms outside of Malang on the road to Pasuruan, Singosari is an unexceptional Javanese village in most respects. However, the humble appearance of the village today belies its great importance in history. For between 1222 and 1293 this area housed the keraton (palace) of Singosari, a Hindu-Buddhist kingdom that was the most powerful on Java in the thirteenth century. Though the great majority of its treasures have been destroyed or pillaged, just enough remains to make this an essential stop on a tour through the highlands around Malang.
In its heyday, the area must have boasted one of the most impressive ensembles of religious buildings in East Java; the remains of no less than eight Hindu and Buddhist temples have been found in the vicinity. They were built around the edge of the alun-alun (town square) which stood in front of the keraton of the king of Singasari, and they would have been a reminder to the ancient Javanese that their ruler wielded not just secular power, but also possessed sakti, an aura of spiritual and religious authority. This would have been especially important for the Singasari kings, whose progenitor, Ken Arok, was a commoner who had seized power by force.
Candi Badut, the oldest surviving structure in all of East Java, is a dated temple; according to an inscription on the temple body, it was completed on the 28th of November in the year 760. This date is now used as the official ‘birth date’ of Malang. During our visit in 2009, there were signs all over town commemorating the 1249th birthday of the city of Malang, with the year 760 being the starting point. From the viewpoint of historical accuracy, this was clearly a rather arbitrary designation. There is no real proof of continuity between Candi Badut and the city of Malang. When the temple was rediscovered by an archaeologist in 1923, it was little more than a pile of rubble and it had clearly been abandoned for many centuries; it is by no means apparent that the area had been continuously settled since 760.
Candi Kidal and Jago
In the villages around the modern city of Malang are a number of temples dating back to the Singosari kingdom, also known as the Singasari or Singhasari. Most of these actually served a dual function. While they were certainly sites for religious ceremonies, they were also, perhaps predominantly, funerary monuments to the Singosari kings. Like the kings of Angkor, who ruled in Cambodia at that time, the Singosari kings were ‘devaraja’, God-kings, and a magnificent funerary monument was required as a projection of their immortal, god-like nature. These temples then were an important part of a worldview which saw the Singosari kings as an essential link between Earth and Heaven, and a visit to them can lend a lot of insight into the culture of ancient Java.
Two of them, Candi Kidal and Candi Jago, are located about 7 kilometres apart to the east of Malang, and they are best visited on a single trip. The closer of the pair to town is Candi Jago but it is also the more recent of the temples, so we will start with Candi Kidal, which is located 22 kilometres from Malang in the small, semi-rural village of Rejokidal. Though taking public transport, we made it there with comparatively few hassles; the whole trip only involved a single change of angkutan (minibus). As always the angkutans were a hot and stuffy way to travel, but they weren’t especially crowded, so at least we had leg room. Admittedly, the trip wasn’t fast, but we got out to Candi Kidal in about an hour and a quarter, which was toward the more hopeful end of our expectations. And the glimpses of village life proved to be a decent pay-off for our efforts.
