Candi Pawon, Magelang

(2.9/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
An early example of Central Javanese religious architecture, Candi Pawon represents a Buddhist temple built in the 9th century, that features building work similar to that of other temples in Central Java, exemplified by its broad base and pyramidal roof. Check out the elaborately carved pot-bellied dwarfs pouring riches over the entrance to this shrine, which is suggestive of this temple being a tribute to Kuvera, the goddess of fortune. Though smaller in stature than the more well-known Borabadur, this structure is older and its simple design gives it an air of authenticity.

  • jika kesini gunakan pakaian yang sopan dan jangan lupa bawa payung soalnya panas sekali, tp banyak spot foto yang bagus 
  • Visited with friends on December 2016. No entrance fee and less than a km away from Borobudur temple. If you want are dreaming of having a temple all by yourself, then visit Pawon Temple. 
  • Candi pawon ini letaknya di tengah antara candi borobudur dan candi mendut. Titik utama ketiga candi ini membentuk satu garis lurus. Candi ini merupakan candi yang paling kecil. Tiket masuk sudah term...  more »

  • I came here by bicycle on my way to Candi Mendut. It's a pleasant little temple with a small park around it in a small village within greater Borobudur. There are refreshments and an artist studio close by. It makes for a pleasant break.
  • Small one room temple set in a cozy alcove. Nothing much to see.
  • Perjalanan satu paket naik andong dari terminal menuju Candi Mendut, Candi Pawon dan Candi Borobudur lanjut terminal lagi
  • Amazing temple
  • Very small, with nothing inside. A look from the outside is enough.
