Sam Poo Kong

It is pagoda Sam Poo Kong (Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia). It's all about great general Cheng Ho, i was told by the guide that the body of him was not burried here but in China (i forgot the name). Here burried his man known as Dampo Awang in Java. The guide told me it is true that Cheng Ho was a moslem, as the sign that big building (please see my drawing) face to kiblat (to Ka'bah). This place is mixing many cultures: moslem, chinesse and javanesse.
