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

  • 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.
  • Great historical place. The ticket is not expensive. But there is some trash scattere around
  • a nice place to do a morning walk. located in the middle of a village in jogja.
  • 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.
