Gedong Songo Temple, Ambarawa

(4.5/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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 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..
  • Tempat yg sejuk

  • tempat bersejarah
  • Temples themselves not exactly astonishing, but the walk and view is very enjoyable.
