Sunan Giri Mosque is located near Gresik about 45 kilometres from the Indonesian city of Surabaya. Its pavilion shelters the tomb of Sunan Giri, one of the nine Muslim saints of Java (see Wali Sanga), and like the tombs of the other wali sanga, it is a significant and highly auspicious pilgrimage point.

Its wood carvings are thought to date back 500 years and are well preserved, retaining the original gold and red lacquer colour scheme.
