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.

  • 这座寺庙非常与众不同,他告诉我这是一座与世隔绝的寺庙,可能还是马塔兰王朝修建的最后一座寺庙,被发现时位于浓密的火山灰底部,保存的很完好。始建于公元9世纪,是一座印度教寺庙。所以它现在呈现出来的感觉好像是在地下,要下一段长长的台阶。而且感觉这个寺庙也是保护的最好,开发的最好的一座寺庙,旁边的草坪上还修剪出了寺庙的名字。  more »

  • 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
