The Gunung Padang Site was first discovered in 1914 by Dutch invaders. The first report on the existence of this site was published in Rapporten van de Oudheidkundige Dienst (ROD, "Bulletin of the Antiquities") in 1914.

The location of the site is steep and difficult to reach. The complex is elongated, covering the surface of a hill bounded by a large square andesite stone lined. The site is surrounded by very deep valleys.

This place had previously been rescued by local residents. Residents consider it the place of King Siliwangi, king of Sunda, trying to build a palace overnight. Even though it has been aged, the rocks on the Gunung Padang Site seem to be neatly arranged and often nicknamed the Indonesian Macchu Picchu. (as/rs)
