Recommended Places of Tourist in Indonesia
1. Sumberawan Temple, the only Berstupa Temple in East Java, Indonesia
Sumberawan Temple is located about 6 kilometers from Singosari Temple in Tumpang. The location of this temple is on the edge of a pine forest located on the slopes of Mount Arjuna, located between a pond that comes from a water source beside the temple.
Malang is known to store various historical values with many found temples with Hindu and Buddhist influences. This time, I visited the famous temple called Sumberawan in Malang. Like other Hindu temples, Sumberawan Temple also keeps a long history of the story of the Majapahit Kingdom.
Sumberawan Temple is about 6 kilometers from Singosari Temple in Tumpang. The location of this temple is on the edge of a pine forest located on the slopes of Mount Arjuna, located between a pond that comes from a water source beside the temple.
The cloud source is the only temple shaped stupa in East Java. In front of the fence the temple location has two name placards, namely the Sumberawan Temple and the Written Sumberawan Stupa. This stupa is approximately 2.23 meters high and is located in Toyomarto Village, Singosari District.
Sumberawan Temple is inseparable from the Majapahit kingdom, especially in the era of Hayam Wuruk's leadership. Based on the book Negarakertagama, the Sumberawan Temple was built in the 14th to 15th centuries.
In the past, the location of the Sumber Awan Temple had been visited by King Hayam Wuruk when traveling around his territory in 1359 AD. Hayam Wuruk then found several sources of springs that have high auras. The location was then built Kasur subscription or pedepokan.
This temple was first discovered in 1904. When found, the temple stupa was gone. Furthermore, in 1935, research was carried out by the Archeological Service of the Dutch East Indies. Then a restoration was carried out on the foot of the temple in 1937, but it was not completed because there were several missing parts. Then, the Sumberawan Temple was reconstructed in an emergency.
Around the location of the temple there is also a building that is used for spiritual actors who want to spend the night. There are two rooms that in front of them emit water which never stops. To the west of the temple there is also the location of the spring that is used as a place of purification. These locations have never been quiet from a number of offerings as well as the aroma of incense and sekar flowers.
Sumberawan Temple is proof of the history of the nation as a red thread of the glory of the Majapahit Kingdom, a form of community development with all aspects of social, religious and cultural life in Indonesia. The remaining temples are now a tangible manifestation of cultural wealth that is timelessly swallowed by science.
