Sukuh Temple, Solo

3.4
#5 of 6 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. To visit Sukuh Temple on your trip to Solo, use our Solo itinerary planner.

    Akses mudah dijangkau, tidak seperti candi cetho yang jauh. Tiket masuk 7000 rupiah, parkir mobil 5000, jangan lupa donasinya.  more »

    Recommend a visit to this small archaeological site dedicated to fertility. You may visit before or after seeing the Candi Cetho. This is also a quick visit and quiet. The temple is located in the beautiful mountains behind, only an hour from the city. In addition to the archaeological site you can also enjoy the local scene. Recommended

    Justifies the trip on "erotic temple with statues that leave little to the imagination. Deserves to be seen, even for the particular location
