Sukuh Temple, Solo

3.4
#5 of 11 in Historic Sites in Solo
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.

  • It is a rare place in Indonesia where the place is still clean and well maintain. It is in a high ground so you can have a good view.  more »
