From Punthuk Setumbhu, it's "a walk away" (literally) to this location. We have to pay (again) to enter this attraction site. Too bad, unlike the pathway from entrance to punthuk setumbu, the pathway to this site is fully land and soil. Slippery when it's rain....More

Nice view of Borobudur from the top of the chicken head. There's a jeep service to bring you to the place for IDR14,000 round trip. Entrance fee is IDR30,000 for foreigners and IDR15,000 for locals.

The place is getting better each year as they renovated all the time. It has a lot of potentials to be better and more attractive, for instance, putting more history cards and other things to make it more interactive.

This place is in the same area as Punthuk Setumbu, a great photo spot viewing the wilderness and trees perfect for either sunrise or sunset. It took around 15 minutes to reach the church from the peak of Punthuk Setumbu. We walked down the hill...More

This is by far the silliest building I have ever seen! It’s said that this is a dove but holly chick it looks like a chicken! Worth 30k rupeh for this and got a really nice view from the top.

This is a unique multi denominational church high on the hill over looking the Borobudur temple far in the distance. From the parking lot you have to climb a long hill or pay to be driven up in a 4 wheel drive vehicle. The church...More

Actually this is not a church, it's a house of prayer whatever your religion/trust. Its shape is not a chicken but a pigeon with the crown. The aim of this place build is for everyone who need to pray with the quiet atmosphere. This is...More

This is by far the oddest church I've visited! I took the jeep to the top and I'm pleased that I did as the road is very steep. Lovely views across the valley.

When visiting Borobodur you can easily take a stop at chicken church but it is not a must do. The church is kind of weird and we paid 30k per paxentrance fee and 5k per scooter for parking. You get a little local snack with...More

This building, originally constructed in the form of a dove, has been locally coined geraja Ayan (chicken church), due to its uncanny resemblance to a chicken. Located about 5km from Borobudur temple, this poultry monument is definitely worth a visit as a good side note...More
