  • Datang jauh jauh kesini cuma pingin lihat sunset nya, keren banget kalo cuacanya bersahabat. Kalo main kesini jangan lupa mampir ke tebing breksi, bagus untuk hunting foto :D 
  • Beautiful views and scenery, but otherwise quite normal, the entrance and a little expensive in relation to what's worth seeing but included a welcome drink to taste and enjoy a great view.

  • I think according to Prambanan temple the way back if you have time. It is a look ruins some Temple ruins on a hill so much buildings remained not so much. Located on a hill from sunset is very clean, would come in the evening because it is so famous.

  • Ratu Boko is an archaeological site known to modern Javanese as Kraton Ratu Boko or Ratu Boko's Palace. Ratu Boko is located on a plateau, about three kilometres south of Lara Jonggrang Prambanan temple complex in Yogyakarta Indonesia. The original name of this site is still unclear, however the local inhabitants named this site after King Boko, the legendary king mentioned in Loro Jonggrang folklore. In Javanese, Ratu Boko means "Stork King".

  • Candi Boko, named from the name of queen ancient Javanese kingdom. His name is "Ratu Boko". In earlier times story, this location is Ratu Boko's palace. The large land area Boko Temple is 2,500 m². The large is almost same with Borobudur Temple. From the local belief, all statues from Boko Temple complex was removed to Borobudur Temple.
  • Believed to be former Mataram kingdom palace. Very beautiful historical "garden". Best place for photography
