Trowulan Off The Beaten Path: 7 reviews and 26 photos
Candi Gentong or Gentong temple is thought to have been a Buddhist temple complex consisting of one central building surrounded by a number of smaller ones. It would have been one of a row of three temples: Candi Gedong, Candi Tengah and Candi Gentong.
However, at the beginning of the 20th century of Candi Gentong only a number of earthen mounds remained, and the other two had disappeared altogether. Since 1995 efforts have been made to uncover what was left of Gentong temple, resulting in the discovery of the remains of five structures.
It is interesting to note that three of the structures use the seamless batu gosok technique of the restored temples, but two of them used seams of clay between the bricks. That would indicate that those buildings had roofs protecting the walls from rain.
Address: Jambumente village, Trowulan district, Mojokerto regency
Directions: From the museum go north, crossing the main road. The site lies 350 east of Brahu temple.
