Sambisari was submerged in meters of ancient volcanic ash and became a padi field when the farmer hit a rock while ploughing his field. From this they found the lost Sambisari temple and perhaps many more will be unearth..what an amazing finding.

Known this Sambisari temple for a long time, but visited only once last month. I guess the renovation has been completed, although I think not everything has been evacuated. It is easy to find this place and it is in the middle of a kampung,...More

Worth to visit. It was buried 8 meters below the ground and unearthed during 1970's. This clearly indicates the ashes/sands from Mount Merapi covering such historical sites, layer by layer over many hundred years. So there may be many such buried temples underground and Mount...More

It was off the beaten track and close to the airport. We had to literally trek down to this recently excavated temple. It wasn't overrun with tourists, so we had the temple to ourselves. Very quite and peaceful.
