Religious places, as sacred places, have stories and memories from past phenomena that can be felt in the present. The Ampel Surabaya settlement is marked by the growth of Islamic culture and makes the residents of the neighborhood live from generation to generation. This older generation plays a role in passing on the memory of the past to the youth generation so that a deep attachment comes from familiarity arises. The study uses place interaction to explore how a person's familiarity with a place contributes to how their relationship with a place. This study uses qualitative strategies to identify how interactions are formed based on familiarity between the youth generation and the place. In-depth interviews were conducted with 9 participants conducted online or face-to-face. The results showed that the lack of familiarity given by the previous generation to the youth generation led to a lack of interaction formed. The interaction that occurs is only limited to passing way and as a shortcut path to another path. So, it is important to maintain the familiarity that is established between generations. With familiarity formed through the exchange of sources of information and behavior between generations, the closeness/familiarity of the individual with the place will be better maintained
