The era of the Majapahit kingdom was the forerunner of gapura. In those days, the gapura has a function as the entrance to the kingdom. Nowadays, the function of gapura shifted into a marker towards the inclusion of a city, including Malang. The entrance gapura of Malang City is identified with a character similar to one of Majapahit relic temple, Gapura Wringin Lawang, located in Mojokerto, East Java. This study aims to visualize the suitability of geometric characters in the city of Malang with Gapura Wringin Lawang. The pairing of four border gapura with the Gapura Wringin Lawang was analyzed by identifying the physical characteristics of the arch to demonstrate the visual suitability between the entrance gapura in Malang City with Gapura Wringin Lawang. To strengthen the results of the analysis, continued synthesis by using the method of fractal geometry assisted by a box-counting method. This method divides the visual image from visible buildings into squares of varying sizes. This method is used to evaluate the fractal dimensions to find out the suitability between the existing buildings and the initial concept of the design. In the future, this concept can help the designer to interpret the idea as well as widen creativity in designing similar buildings.
