  • This temple is located a few km south of Prambanan, but a free shuttle made it back and forth between the two sites (departure from inside the site of Prambanan) very quiet and relaxing compared to his illustrious neighbour, it is no less beautiful and especially very large. The main doors, behind several buildings, cellars (FRO) and beautiful pools. Finally, you can access a view impressive Prambanan and the Merapi (in good weather).

  • A nice quiet place to view the sunset.. You may need to walk for awhile to view the whole area.. I found a nice spot to relax and view the evening settling in. 
  • Beautiful place, with beautiful views and wide between the different constructions. Doors are the most picturesque but all the Trek is worth. Very neat roads and large lawn invites contemplation. If you want a temple with quiet places this is.

  • Believed to be former Mataram kingdom palace. Very beautiful historical "garden". Best place for photography
  • teduh kalo pagi...
  • Here is more like a garden rather than historical place. Big area here you can enjoy the view of Jogjakarta city from the top. If you come here after 3:30pm, you are fixed to "enjoy" their sunset ticket. Although the restaurant seems nice, but you have no choice to pay less for without sunset.
  • Istana means Palace, not Temple. I wonder if this place was related to prophet Solomon as some people believe that Boko is referred to Bilqis in Solomon's story.
