When you want to visiting Prambanan, dont forget also visiting Plaosan Temple. This place is closed to Prambanan just about 300m. Plaosan have a best sunrise and sunset! This place recomended if you are a travel photographer.

Although quite crowded, the temple was large enough to find space and enjoy the intricate carvings and sculptures. An amazing ancient Hindu temple in a beautiful green park.

Much more quiet than Prembanan and therefore much more relaxed. Wouldn't skip this one, because of the beauty and the atmosphere.

The temple was built by a Buddhist princess whose husband was Hindu, the same who built Prambanam. So you can see here a combination of both architectures.

Slighlty away from the Prambanan temple complex but uses the same architecture and similar rocks. A visit to this place is a must when in Jogja.

This is a Buddhist temple so we can look some statues like Avalokiteshvara in there. It's good and the entrance fee is so cheap. Not too far from Prambanan, you can enjoy paddy fields when you ride there. The temple is very good. Love it.

A stone's throw from much more famous Prambanan, this smaller gem is excellently and discreetly restored to convey a sense of what the whole (otherwise huge) site would have looked like centuries ago. And what makes this place very worthy of a leisurely visit is that it is neglected by the agencies and tour buses, and even by most solo... More
