Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
Built on a mountain slope in the 15th century, Cetho Temple remains a significant landmark as it predates the influx of Islamic influences to the region. You'll see authentic Javanese architecture, sculptures, and figures from the period, which to this day experts continue to analyze. At 1,495 m (4,905 ft) above sea level, the grounds afford expansive views of the surroundings, including the nearby tea plantations. Be prepared for an exhausting climb, however: the steep slope has many steps leading up to the site. Put Cetho Temple into our Solo trip builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
