It is not well known among the foreigners, but it is my favourite temple in the surroundings of Yogya. Placed in a flat place, surrounded by ricefields. It is just a magical place. You will love it. Trust me! And the entrance ticket is free or supercheap.

This Temple if located close to the Sewu and Prambnan Temple complexes. One must visit this temple also when visiting Prambnan Temple. This temple reflects the mixed style of Hindu and Budhist temple styles.

If you need a temple place for a break, here is a better choice compare with Prambanan Temple. For entrance fee only RP 3,000, you can experience the similar, but much lesser people here, and here with a good green field. Very good for rest and photo.

It is believed that the left temple is the women temple and the right... More

This temple is a Buddhist temple and the wife of the Hindu King was a Buddhist and the Queen used to pray here. The buddhist statues inside are amazing and the ruins outside indicate the lapse of time. The place and the surrounding is amazing and is a must visit for anyone in Yogyakarta.

An alternative to visit beside Prambanan Temple nearby. Not crowded by people, but still on reconstruction. Good place to visit for you who dont like crowded place.
