The Sambisari Temple, Yogyakarta
(4.1/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • Candi Sambisari adalah candi cantik timur kota Jogja. Mudah dijangkau dari Jogja dengan mobil, motor maupun bersepeda. Bertiga kami menyusuri jalan di tepian selokan yang dikenal sebagai Selokan Matar...  more »
  • Bersih.. terawat.. dan tiket masuk yang bersahabat. Sekitar 2-3 km dari jalan solo.. Tutup jam 17.00 
  • candi yang terletak dibawah tanah, sehingga untuk melihat dan masuk ke area candi kita menuruni anak tangga...pemandangan alam sekitar candi sangat elok..sangat cocok untuk kunjungan wisata sekeluarga

  • 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
