It is located within the Pantai Ria amusement park and become a tourist destination, even though it is originally a worship place for Tridharma followers. The name of Sanggar Agung is derived from Indonesian language which can be translated as Great Hall.The main icon of this temple is a 20 meters tall statue of Guan Yin on the waterfront, as a symbol that this temple is dedicated to Nan Hai Guan Shi Yin Pu Sa or Guan Yin Bodhisattva of the South Sea. The giant statue was built after one of its employees saw a women dressed in white walking on the sea as she was about closing the temple at night, believed as the appearance of Guan Yin herself. The other icon is the giant Phra Phrom statue covered with gold.HistoryKwan Kong BioIn the Moon Festival of 1978, on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese Calendar, a temple was built about 500 meters to the south of the current location of Sanggar Agung.

  • This place is too far for a visit Too hot also, sun reflection on seawater in front of this place double the air heating Probably it is meant for spiritual training to forge strong mental will to attain better endurance & will power Big Dragon Statues strongly reflect the Strong Accents, to imbue bravery & spiritual confidence Big Gods' Statues bring religious hue in this "Sanggar Agung" Probably 關公 ”KWAN KONG" And other Gods too. Big Candles with remarkable ornaments probably Buddhism tradition, housed in the Entrance Building.-
  • Nice place near beach, nice Buddha Temple for throw flower to the sea. Clean and Safe. But it's rather hot and crowded in the weekend or Holiday. There's Kwan-im Temple and Statue above Gate which guarded 4 Kings and 2 Dragons, 4 Face God, and Pagoda. Access enter to Sanggar Agung parking 5,000 rupiah exclude entry fee 20,000 for car (include 2person) and 15,000 for bike (include 2person). Extra 5,000 each for entry. If you want to get cheaper parking fee, you can bought disc ticket with 2,500 rupiah max 4 tickets after pray or visit Sanggar Agung Temple. Be careful with your stuff, never leave important things in car.

  • A beautiful view so we can see exactly the sea from the dragon statue and see the buddhist pray inside the temple.
  • HUGE statues of #chinese #shrine facing the sea. Located in Pantai Ria Kenjeran of Surabaya. A vast area of Kenjeran beach, seemed to be intended as the biggest theme park in Surabaya. Unfortunately there is no serious investors interested in developing it. Such a waste of potential tourism and entertainment.
