    It is a small Temple beside the Temple of Borobudur. It is small but very nice, it is quite cheap to enter, some 3,500 rupees - 0.30 euros - but it is worth visiting it.

    Candi yang memang gendut, although not the largest but its remains and close proximity to Borobudur made a quick visit will not be a waste of time.
