Sukuh Temple, Solo

(240+ reviews on the web)
Ruin
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.

  • letak candi sukuh memang agak susah untuk dijangkau, tetapi sudah banyak wisatawan yang mengetahui lokasi candi sukuh yang jalannya sangat menanjak dengan kanan kiri jurang  more »
