There were other artefacts found at the same time, some are now in the Denpasar Museum, however a few items are in the Pura Belanjong “temple” grounds right next to the glass enclosed that contains the stone pillar. In the temple grounds there are a few very old carved statutes "

He was a Javanese king who lived in a palace in Singhadwala around the year 917 AD. Since holding a dozen years scholars engaged in the Blanjong.

The top of the pillar is in the form of a lotus. It's special, that contains this inscription two types of text. At the top there are six lines with letters Pranegari using ancient Balinese language (Kawi) and on the bottom side there are thirteen lines with letters of ancient Bali and Sanskrit.

In addition to the discovery of inscriptions in Blanjong also some images could be found. Some images were still intact when they found them, others not. This was due to the high age of the images.
