On the way back from Borobudur stop at Pawon for 3 or 4 minutes. Pawon is well maintained and deserves the short visit
Something to visit while near Borobudur. Not worth purposely travelling from Yogyakarta for as it is too small.
This temple is within few kms o monument of Borobudur. Three monuments...Borobudur, Candi Pawon and Candi Mendhut are in a straightline. Pawon means pious in India
Well, you have already visited Borobudur and probably is on your way to Mendut Temple, so make a quick stop at Pawon and visit the smallest of the three temples of the complex of Borobudur. These three temples are located on a straight line, suggesting a symbolic meaning lost upon the centuries. Pawon was built arount the 8th and 9th... More
This Buddhist temple is located 1km+ from Borobudur. It is enroute Jogja to Borobudur. A much smaller scale compared to Borobudur, it's very quiet and serene.

It is a very small ancient Buddhist temple and very near Borobudur. 5 minutes is all it takes to cover this attraction. A minor attraction only.
This temple is a small temple surrounded by huts used as souvenir stalls. The temple itself is very small having a footrprint of about 12m square. The architecture is very well kept and the details of the sculpture are very intricate. Compared to the main temple of Borobudur this is an anti-climax but for those interested in such architectural gems... More
Candi Pawon (Buddhist temple dated 8th–9th centuries) is one and half kilometers westward from Mendut Temple and eastward from Borobudur Temple on a straight line. The easiest way to visit this place is on the way to/from Borobudur. Most probably, this temple served to purify the mind prior to ascending Borobudur. Another suggestion is that this temple was probably built... More
as I said, this temple cannot be ignored. it is told as a unity of the three temples: Borobudur, Mendut, Pawon, at least you should see it and take a pic. it is only a temple ruin and surrounded by villagers' houses. get a horse carriage - I forgot the name- to get u around those three, for a day...
