Kemarao Island


Kemaro Island is a tiny delta of Musi River, located about 6 kilometers downstream of Ampera Bridge. There is a Chinese vihara (klenteng Hok Tjing Rio) on it. Kemaro Island lies between the industrial areas of Sriwijaya Fertilizer Plant and Pertamina Oil Refinery in Plaju and Gerong River. Forty kilometers from Palembang, Kamero Island is a popular recreation site in the middle of Musi River. On the island there is a Buddha temple that often visited by Buddhists to pray or to visit the graves. Beside that, there is also mean of foretelling one's life and marriage. A great religious event Cap Go Meh is held in Kemaro Island every Imlek New Year.
