Central Java: Semarang

After the long, long ride yesterday, with traffic jam in Kandanghaur village in the area of Indramayu, stop by for very late lunch in the town of Cirebon, continuing through the bad road, we arrived in Semarang late in the evening. Now we're taking a little trip around before going to our next destination, Blora.

We went to buy lunpia, a typical Semarang Now we're at Sam Po Kong, a chinese temple built by Cheng Ho's men. Some say it was originally a small mosque, as Cheng Ho's man was a Muslim. But after he died, local chinese people worship him and made the building a temple. More photos and probably about the history will follow later when i'm back home (hopefully will have the chance to finish this entry).
