You don't always get to see a temple with a blend of Chinese, Balinese, Javanese and Thai architecture. The Sanggar Agung temple was built in the year 1999 by the Tridharma followers, originally as a worship place which later emerged as one of the major tourist destinations of Surabaya due to the folklore of Guan Yin, the goddess of mercy. One of the main attractions of the temple is the Phra Phrom Stupa, a large golden 4-faced statue of Phra Phrom, the Thai depiction of the Hindu god Brahma.
One of the defining features of this temple is that is built over the sea and is surrounded by mangrove forests, which also support a wide variety of biodiversity. The distinctly Balinese style of the building is contrasted against the profoundly Javanese roof along with traces of Chinese architectural temple features make this temple a symbol of religious harmony amongst Surabayans and the visitors of the temple include people of all faiths and religions.
