History of the kingdom of Kahuripan
Kahuripan (also spelt Kuripan) was an 11th-century Javanese Hindu-Buddhist kingdom with its capital located around the estuarine of Brantas River valley in East Java. The kingdom was short lived only spanned the period between 1019 to 1045 and Airlangga was the only raja of the kingdom, which was built out of the rubble of the Kingdom of Medang after the Srivijaya invasion. Airlangga later in 1045 abdicated in favor of his two sons. Sri Samarawijaya got Kadiri (Panjalu) and Mapanji Garasakan got Janggala.
The kingdom’s name derived from Old Javanese term hurip (“to life”) with circumfix ka- -an which means “life” or “livelihood”. Later in 14th to 15th century, the former kingdom was recognized as one of Majapahit’s 12 provinces.

Petirtaan Belahan, also known as Candi Belahan
Petirtaan Belahan, also known as Candi Belah or Sumber Tetek, is a historical bathhouse, that was built in the 11th century, during the reign of King Airlangga of the Kahuripan Kingdom.
Jalatunda Temple is a bathplace, made during the Airlangga era.
This temple is a monument of love of King Udayana to welcome the birth of his son, King Airlangga, which was built in 997 AD. Other sources say that this temple was Airlangga’s hermitage after retiring from the throne and being replaced by his son.
This site, which testifies to the greatness of King Airlangga, is set among the houses of residents. There is nothing special. At first glance it looks like a large gravestone. There is no special sign like at the Majapahit temples in famous Trowulan. There is only a protective place in the form of a small joglo with a fence around the inscription.
From this inscription it can be estimated that the capital of the Kahuripan Kingdom at that time was Daha.
