4.1/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • We were often in Yogjakarta and have pretty much all the temples which can be seen, the Sambisari was missing but somehow. So we took a taxi and the driver had great trouble to find the temple (2 x procedure - not fake, we had fixed price). Arrived at the destination the disillusionment, the temple (the temple complex) was however smaller than expected. No matter, the facility was clean, well maintained and the weather was perfect. For some photo shoots and "there have been" it was absolutely ok. Who wants to see more should fall back on the Borobudur and Prambanan and who wants to see still more must fly to Cambodia (Angkor Wat). What I can understand but not so completely is the price of admission. 2000 indon. Rupiah, or about 14 euro cents. Why not take 1 dollar / euro by tourists to get acquainted with the cultural treasures / world heritage site revenue and maintain? 1 dollar / euro hurt do definitely not tourists.

  • teduh kalo pagi...
  • 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
  • Another beautiful Hindu temple in Jogja area. You must visit
  • keren abis
