"Grebeg Singhasari" literally taken from the Old Javanese term "Grebeg" or "gerebeg" which has a clatter of many feet meaning the thunderous (Zoetmulder, 1995:309). In this context, the meaning of the word "Grebeg" refers to the meaning of the kerahan to attend an event. Grebeg Singhasari term used to animate a warning and celebration of 'Day Birthday (anniversary) of Malang Regency.
Deliberately used the name "Singhasari", not the name of "Singosari", Singhasari is arkhais name, which since the year 1254 AD is used to name the capital of the kingdom Tumapel, and then popular to name this kingdom. Singhasari is "icon (icon)" for Malang Raya, which is not only well-known in the archipelago, but also popular in the international realm. In the past this name is used as a great empire, which appears as an autonomous kingdom (1222 - 1292 AD), and then became a vassal kingdom of Majapahit (1293-1527 AD).
