4.5/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • for the second time here, we were always impressive. Magnificent views in places where one would not necessarily expect Temple. Our daughter opted for the tour on horseback - at a fair price. I recommend this temple complex further, would like to point out also, it should be good, it is very extensive.

  • Candi gedong songo now is way much better than few past year when i came there. It's now in a good managed. It is good for family to spent holiday there, especially to introduce the mountainous experience to the kids. You can go sight seeing the temple by horse or by walking/hiking. There are two kind of paths which are for horsing and for walker/hiker (pejalan kaki). If you wanna stay overnight, there are houses in the temple area for rent. So, what do u waiting for? Come and enjoy the panorama...
