Jindeyuan Temple was on fire at March 2nd 2015. It burned 300+ years old heritage building of oldest Chinese temple in Jakarta. Since then, various attempts were done to build it up again. Within so many people that interested on Jindeyuan, they are roughly divided into two general groups; one try to preserve, while the other try to revive. These groups made any attempt to rebuild again Jindeyuan become almost impossible. The other problem lies on the decision makers. Jindeyuan Temple, beside its heritage and cultural functions, still a legal private property; belongs to individual. Any archaeological preservation and conservation design that was not approved by the owner (or owner’s board), will fail to apply. In this paper, writer tries to outline the big problem and the attempt to gather sample data from real visitors of this temple and some from observers to this temple by online questionnaire. Many interesting findings and interpretations are shown here, leading to various design preliminaries. The research itself only using simple quantitative method on interpreting data gathered from questionnaire. When the right design still on hot debate, simpler alternative with tendency to restore the original building already on progress. Digital restoration through gathering old data about the temple, its measurements and its old photographs. Digital restoration using software 3D Max will generate comprehensive image of the old building without any alteration. This work is not completed yet by this time, since intricate decorations and carvings that adorned the building need some more measurement to draw.
