Located in a small delta of the Musi River about 6 kilometers downstream of the Ampera Bridge, Kemaro Island is a famous tourist attraction in South Sumatra because of the scenic beauty it has to offer along with the various temples and festivals that tourists and the frequenting locals can visit and enjoy. The island acts as a recreational site for many, as it is located 40 kilometers away from the hustle bustle of the main city of Palembang.
The island is also home to a Chinese Vihara, or Klenteng Hok Tjing Rio, which has nine stairs and is located in the middle of the Kemaro Island. The structure has a typical Chinese style of architecture and is known as the signature icon of the island. Tourists tend to flock the place during the time of major Chinese festivals like the Cap Go Meh or the Imlek New Year, and the venue also has other structures like a Buddha temple and the graveyard of Prince Tan Bun An from China and Princess Siti Fatimah of Sriwijaya.
