Sangiran is an archaeological excavation and World Heritage Site located in the Solo River valley on the island of Java, Indonesia. The site was unearthed by German anthropologist Gustav Heinrich Ralph von Koenigswald in 1934, and he quickly realized that he had found something special. Sangiran is about 48 square kilometres big and contains fossils of some of the most ancient human ancestors ever discovered, giving it the title of “Sangiran Early Man Site.” In addition, many fossils of other animals were found, making this one of the most important anthropological discoveries of the 20th century.

  • Take a day trip to Sangiran from Solo and you can learn about the past one million years of the evolution of Homo erectus through the exhibits and fossils at the site.
  • See some of the animals that primitive man was eating and hunting at Sangiran, including rhinoceros, elephant, buffalo, deer, and many others that help explain the habits of early man.
  • Marvel at Palaeolithic tools that can be dated to around 800,000 BP on your trip to Sangiran, a great way to combine fun and learning on your holiday in Solo.

The Sangiran Early Man Site and Museum is about 15 kilometres from Solo, so it is easy to get there using public transport or private car. One of the best ways to see the area is to hire a car in Solo and explore the surrounding region. This will make it easy for you to get around Solo, as well as to Sangiran. There are also buses that run from the main bus station in Solo directly to the Sangiran Museum, so you should have no problem getting there. Most people arrive in Solo via the Adi Sumarmo International Airport.
