  • great place to enjoy the sunset view. best to come here around 4pm so you could walk around the archeological site and still have time to enjoying the sunset. this place could be very very crowded during weekend so you should visit this place during weekday if you have time.
  • This place is actually amazing. Imagine how did they brought all of those‚Äč big stones up there. A nice place to enjoy sunset too. I have to say that it is quite overpriced for foreigners.
  • Great view especially to Prambanan temple from afar, unique temples complex & garden. The restaurant location is very strategic tho need more toilets and cleanliness.
  • Anciently romantic temple..when the sky is clear we can enjoy the romantic sunset also..we can see Prambanan temple from this place..very recomended to visit
  • A great place to take photos. The garden, the arceological sites, the sunset.. pure beauty...
