  • Amazing history at this place. Very peaceful and well maintained. The resoration is beautiful and keeps to the authenticity of the site. Located not too far from the temple of Borobudur it is a must stop attraction for locals and bule alike. Make sure to stop by the monestary right across the street for even more culture of this area
  • Nice, clean place. Souvenir sellers are a bit annoying. Nice carvings on the temple. Good start before going to Borobudur.
  • Lovely ancient temple... relatively well maintained
  • Beautiful temple. Easy to access and good option to stop by on your way back to Yogyakarta.
  • Just a one big candi can be seen by traveller from general road. The ticket to enter is also cheap
