The Sambisari Temple, Yogyakarta

Observe the Buddhist and Hindu elements of The Sambisari Temple, a small, secluded 9th-century Hindu temple. The temple was accidentally rediscovered in the 1960s when a farmer ploughing his rice field struck its tip--apparently the structure had been buried under volcanic ash. Note the interesting statues and reliefs in the stone, and walk around the well-maintained garden. Visit the onsite museum for more information about the temple's history and architecture. Rarely crowded, this archeological site exudes a peaceful atmosphere. Our Depok tour planner makes visiting The Sambisari Temple and other Depok attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • I see it more as a park than a historical site. Since it's closer to the city than any other Candi as well. There's a small museum located near the ticket box.
  • Hindu temple was built in the 8th century, its one of the evidence that Nusantara, previous name before Indonesia, had already have irrigation system. Its recommended to visit those who atudy asian history.
  • Underground Shiva's temple. So happy it's discovered in 1966 Giant Shiva's lingga on the main temple soround by 8 smaller linggam on every corners. There are 8 of them. Obviously build to praise Lord Shiva
  • Nice little temple, really popular among students and young lovers. Cheap and nice
  • Beautiful small temple.. but the street is too narrow for two car
