					                                              Cangkuang Temple is a Hindu temple located in
                                              Kampung Pulo, Cangkuang region, Leles subdistrict,
                                              Garut, West Java. The temple is also the first time found
                                              in Tatar Sunda and is the only Hindu temple in Tatar
                                              Sunda.
                                              This temple was first discovered in 1966 by a team of
                                              researchers based Harsoyo and Uka Candrasasmita
                                              Vorderman report (published in 1893) about the
                                              existence of a broken statue and the tomb of
Mohammed Arif on Leles ancestors. In addition to finding the ruins of the temple, there are also
pieces of knives and large rocks that are thought to be relics of megalithic era. Subsequent research
(1967       and        1968)      managed        to       dig     up      the      tomb         building.
Although it was almost certain that this temple is a Hindu religious heritage (roughly the 8th century
AD, an era with the temples on the site and Cibuaya Batujaya?), Which surprisingly is the Islamic
cemetery                                             beside                                            it.
Cangkuang Temple located in a small island whose shape extends from west to east with an area of
16.5 ha. This small island located in the middle of the lake Cangkuang.
