Taman Bungkul is one of open green areas and is dedicated to the artifact of history. The presence of Taman Bungkul, surrounded by trees and green grass, brings great benefits in terms of minimizing air pollution and also as a social atmosphere in the neighbourhood.
There’s Mbah Bungkul Grave, the founder of the name, around the park. According to GH Von Faber, the Bungkul funeral complex had been in operation since the Hindu period.
The grave arch and fence depicts the Java Hindu style of architecture from the Majapahit era. The Graves had been there since 1930 of the Javanese Calendar, well before Islam arrived on the island of Java.
The presence of Bungkul Park has been protected by the city government since the Dutch colonial period. The location of Bungkul Park, which resides in the center of Dutch residential property, can be seen as admiration for urban planners at that time.
There is an open area on the west side of the Grave, generally used for various activities in the Surabaya area, such as sport, artistry, campaign and many others.
The field around Mbah Bungkul Grave is also crowded with food and beverage vendors. Bungkul Park is therefore intended to be the excellent city park in Surabaya.
