A cluster of small Hindu Javanese buildings built in the 8th century, Gedong Songo Temple sits atop a mountain for views of the surrounding landscape. Representing the oldest Hindu structures in the area, the temple is an early example of architecture erected from the volcanic stone abundant in the Javanese mountains, similar to Dieng Plateau. You can drive a car to the site, but consider renting a ride on horseback from town for an authentic, local feel. Our Ambarawa family vacation planner makes visiting Gedong Songo Temple and other Ambarawa attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Great view, lousy maintenance. No guide or history banner such thing at least for walker tourist. There are second option to travel that is by horse but seems it just riding and photography. Cleanliness is bad, not enough cleaning service officer or trash bin.the horses faeces are on the side of the walkpath as they not wearing the special pants for horse. The local government should take notice and immediate action for this to preserve the sites and surrounding natures.

Great place!! When you have arrived at this place. Make sure that you are ready for hiking. Put your sneakers, ready for bugs, for rain (outdoors), put some mosquito repellent if u want. Hey this is all about nature. Fresh air and amazing view. Don't worry about food or water, locals had it all cover until the last Temple (candi V) all the way down through exit. They provide horse if u want it, so no worry.. Have a great trip..
