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 Sleman tour planner makes visiting The Sambisari Temple and other Sleman attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Located in the middle of the rice field area of settlement and Kalasan. Sambisari temple surrounded by stone bentenng, consists of a main temple yg intact and 2 yg only Temple ruins remaining parts essentially. Around the temple are gardens, grassy green wrote. It's just that if the weather was very hot. We recommend that you come in the afternoon.

  • Sambisari Temple is the most unique if dbandingkan with other temples because it is below the ground level. JD layout of the temple is indeed must be excavated so barubkeliatan Temple. The place is spacious, clean, comfortable and certainly great for spot images. There are several gazebos yg bs that we managers prepared relax enjoy the atmosphere around the temple. North Sebwlah this temple there is a popular soup stall saotho bathok. JD after touring the temple, there is no harm in eating sebwlah continued north.

  • Great historical place. The ticket is not expensive. But there is some trash scattere around
  • Come in rainy season and the grass starts to grow. Green grass with blue sky are perfect combination! Ticket for domestic visitors is only 5K rupiahs, while for Int visitors is only 10K rupiahs.
  • As we went there yesterday, this place has been covered by green grass and made it looked awesome.. Unfortunately i brought my lil daughter, 2 y 8m,and it was a bit difficult to reach the temple, as there were no hand grab on the stairs.. Having acrophobia?? You should avoid those stairs as i did..
  • I really love visit in Sambisari Temple,Kalasan,Sleman,Jogjakarta. The best time to visit here in the morming at 6 am until 10am because the sun still not rise up yet. If you come at 10am up it's very bad.. the sun will burn your skin ☉☉☉🌞🌞 . Don't forget to put sunblock cream or handbody lotion. After you visit Sambisari Temple, Don't eat Soto Bathok Katro Sambisari. It's a nice resto beacuse the bowl use Coconut Shell to serve the Beef Soto. We get a nice price & place but i don't too much like the taste because of too much ginger.
  • One of remaining temple from ancient mataram kingdom. Came here about 5 pm and there were no charge at all. nice spot, not to crowded and clean. The temple small though and there were no guides when i look for one to tell the history of the temple.
