Cetho Temple, Solo

4.6
#1 of 6 in Historic Sites in Solo
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.

  • Hindu temple in the mountains. Construction in black volcanic stones. Paid parking access. Wearing a sarong mandatory (5000 Rp) which is differently in men and women. A local guide communicates on the particularity of spirituality, out of religions, and harmony found more than on Bali. Provides guidance on the representations of buildings, and the provision of certain works. And you take part in a session of meditation (10 minutes). Beautiful experience. In addition to a nice walk in the mountains.

  • the distance from the temple solo city far enough in my opinion and this pays off with disguhkan scenery along the way and at the temple itself, in addition to the Foundation of the temple is also the tourist entrance or post the ascent of Mount lawu. the price of admission is cheap and will not lose to it I think.
