I love Prambanan. I have been here few times and never get bored. This temple always draws me back to come here. It's very neat and clean. And it's quite vast to walk around. Don't forget to bring water with you just in case you get thirsty after walking around.

The main site of the Prambanan complex is located inside a large, landscaped park. The complex is open daily from 6AM to 6PM. Try to visit early as it gets really hot in the afternoon. Entry costs for Indonesians are less than $4, while foreigners are charged a fixed tourist rate of Rp 252,000 There is also a combination ticket... More

We went on a combined trip Borobudur + Prambanan. We booked transport at our hotel for IDR 140,000. The combined ticket for both sites costed IDR 420,000 - that's a price for foreigners as Indonesians pay IDR 50,000 (sic!). Borobudur was first and to Prambanan we got around 10am. Hindu temple compund that's one of the largest Hindu sites in... More

Very large campus, beautiful architecture. However the major missing point was lack of signs for tourists. The locals are familiar with directions and prices, but ffor tourists it was very difficult. They offer free shuttle to the nearby temples also. Unless you have first hand information about this, you will end up paying for a shuttle which is nothing but... More

Most people combine the Borobudur with the Prambanan (I would recommend this). However, If you have seen other temples, this is not a special one. Of course there is a totally different background story, which is interesting. There are 3 other temples on the park. All of these are either closed for visiting or being rebuild. Definetly go to the... More

I came here with myfamily. I visited Prambanan Temple recently on a rainy day and I say it was well worth it. I loved the view very much. It reminded me of a palace in an ancient times because of the shapes of the temples. However, I think it is best to visit the place on a fine weather preferably... More
