The most important religious landmark and unique architectural monument is Pura Maospahit, a Hindu temple whose construction was completed in the middle of the 14th century. The style in which the temple was built is strikingly different from traditions that were typical for the early Middle Ages. On its walls one cannot see traditional carvings and paintings, however, the temple has several cozy courtyards. They are adorned with ancient statues of mythical creatures, and in the very center of the temple, there is a hollow tree trunk that serves as an alarm.
To the east of the city center is the famous cultural center Taman Budaya, which is occupied by an art gallery and several concert venues. Interesting cultural events, dance and music shows often take place within its walls. If during the daytime an entertainment program consists of walking around interesting historical sites and cultural institutions, then at nightfall, Kumbasari night market becomes the main place of interest. Besides countless stalls, here you can find a lot of attractive gastronomic establishments.
