Sukuh Temple, Solo

(3.4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Soak up some local history by visiting Sukuh Temple, a 15th-century structure located on the western slope of Mount Lawu. One of the last major Hindu temples built before the Javanese conversion to Islam, the site displays less of an Indian influence than earlier places of worship. See the flat-topped pyramid, which resembles a Mayan monument dropped into the Javanese jungle, and admire the many intricate statues and carvings, many of them sexually explicit. From this temple, you can enjoy commanding views of the lush surrounding mountainsides. To visit Sukuh Temple on your trip to Solo, use our Solo itinerary planner.

  • OK, this isn't the level of Borobodur or Prambanan, but nice visit in the early morning, at the start of Solo in the direction of the Bromo. Some "erotic" performances, but on the other hand, beautiful atmosphere while walking through this nice site.
