Ngempon Temple is one of the historical sites around the Mount Ungaran area. Ngempon Temple is the result of Hindu civilization in Indonesia which was built in the VIII-IX century. This research was conducted in the Ngempon area because it is necessary to conserve historical sites associated with geological sites in the study area. This study aims to determine the geological aspects that have the potential to become geotourism sites in the research area. The methods used are geological mapping for field data collection and petrographic analysis to determine rock characteristics. There are several sites including historical sites and geological sites in the vicinity of Ngempon Temple, namely Ngempon Temple, Diwak Waterfall, and Derekan Hot Springs. The lithologies found in the research area are claystone, tuff sandstone, basaltic andesite breccia, and andesite breccia. The volcanic rock in the research area is formed by Mount Ungaran activity during Lower Pleistocene until Holocene.
