The Sambisari Temple, Yogyakarta

(4.1/5 based on 190 reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is a park along the direction of Prambanan. Compared to the ruins degree restored the cornerstone of old ruins of other ancient buildings remain rarely tourists. I think a good step on the way to the airport if you have time around.

  • We found the temple by accident after having breakfast while seeing through the map. The place is absolutely awesome and very clean. The entrance ticket is very cheap, 2k IDR only!

  • Candi Sambisari, located within 12 km east of Yogyakarta (40 minutes) or 4 km before the temple of Prambanan (10 minutes). This temple is very unique because of its location is approximately 6.5 meters below ground level. This temple complex consists of the main temple and 3 accompanying temple surrounded by a stone wall. Green grass that grows regularly in the courtyard of the temple like a beautiful green carpet. For entry into this Hindu temple area, you do not need to pay an expensive tickets. Around the temple there is a building as a place of photos and documentation about the temple
