Candi Pawon, Magelang

(2.9/5 based on 120+ 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. Use our Mendut vacation route planner to visit Candi Pawon on your trip to Mendut, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • Borobudur away away. I like the wayside one temple. A temple relief remains clean. You can also parked on the street because traffic was not intense bike and car if in a short time.

  • Inspiring and interesting place to visit. Was on my bucket list of places to see and was certainly not disappointed.  more »
  • 寺庙门票是3500卢比,门票包含巴望寺和门杜寺两个寺,所以从这儿出来以后千万别把票扔了。巴望寺很小,我在的时候没有任何游客。外墙上有浮雕。  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.
