Mojokerto, a thinly populated city in the East Java province, provides many an attraction for a growing array of visitors. Boasting ancient temples and intricate gateways that are unique to this part of the world, enjoy the feeling of being caught in time while exploring this destination. Soak in the local culture and the laid back charm as you stroll along the promenade by the Brantas river; this is a popular area where local people gather to snack and relaxing in the evenings. Mojokerto offers architectural gems as well – pay a visit the Hok Siang Kiong temple to observe the influence of Chinese architectural styles on indigenous structures. Wringin Lawang, the 14th century iconic gateway, is very typical of Javan architecture dating back to the Majapahit Empire who once ruled these lands. Apart from the culture, the city also offers delectable Indonesian cuisine: the onde-onde, a pastry snack from the Bo Liem bakery, bears testimony to this!
