  • Entrance fee 3.500 (Domestic / Foreigner) Best time to visit around 4 pm 🌻🌻
  • One of the most iconic Buddhist temple in Central Java. Smaller than the Borobudur
  • 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.
  • Learn the history and you'll love this place which hold you not to think things such as "That's it? This temple area is so narrow".
