This is a famous Buddha temple in Surabaya, took us an hour to reach from our hotel but was totally worth it.

beautiful statue and next to it there is a nice temple with many lights and candles which make an amazing atmosphere. There are not too many people around but its a bit difficult to get a taxi

Taxi really tried hard to scam my wife and me, but she's a local, so he was more or less just pissy. The Temple grounds have a few photo opps, but nothing special. It's too much of a carnival atmosphere, attracting plenty of teens looking for a way to get away from their parents more than anything.

This temple is beautiful and well-maintained. Good for taking pictures and just strolling around. There's a wet market near it where you can buy Indonesian sea food.

Many people usually mistook Sanggar Agung Temple as a four-faced Buddha housing therein. In fact it should be named Buddha Empat Rupa. So what does "Sanggar Agung Temple" refer to?

We were not told that we had to pay the entrance fee to the Ken Park in order to see this because it's in the Park compound. Included in the compound is the Kuan Im Temple.

It's really a nice place whether you want to pray or just enjoy the scenery. This place has "Four Face Buddha“ statue, just like in Bangkok but much much bigger in size, and of course less crowded.
