As an international tourist, this place is a rip off. Be sure to come early morning to avoid all the Indonesian school classes because they hunt you down for photos. They literally don't stop even if you ask them to.

I was there for marathon event of my company. It was my first time visit Prambanan Temple. Worth to see if it's your first time, but I don't think I will come again for my next trip because there are so many temples in Yogyakarta that you can see.

Recommend go late afternoon so you can 1. Walk around both sets of temple complexes. They are about apart and when we went everyone went to first and only a couple of people visited the second very large complex. Really fascinating Budhist and Hindu complexes 2. Have dinner in the restaurant on the lawns as the sun sets and they... More

A definite 'must see' for anyone visiting Yogyakarta, and about 40 minutes away by car. Built around the same time as Borobudur and from the same material, this Hindu temple is stunning. It has been partially rebuilt following an earthquake in 2008, and the central temple complex is stunning. Go early, ir late, to avoid the crowds. There's a large... More

Beautiful, decorative stone temples that have been lovingly restored. Visit made extra special by students that wanted to practise their English and gave us a guided tour free of charge, teaching us all about the history and origins of each temple. They said they come every day so well worth seeking them out if you can as they gave us... More

No words to describe this temple complex. Its beautiful and totally unimaginable how it could have been completed in the 9th century. Although it looks smaller than the Angkor Wat in Siam Reap, Cambodia this is really beautiful as good restoration work has managed to revive many stone sculptures and stone carvings. The Sanjaya Hindu Kingdom looks still alive here.

The temple has been well restored and is surrounded by a nice park. The grounds around the individual temples are flat and easy to walk around. Going up into the mail temple requires climbing some steep stairs (going down them is the more difficult). Enjoyed walking around the various levels of the main temple and viewing the stone murals. Was... More

We visited on a Wednesday afternoon and the site was fairly quiet, I believe it gets busy of a weekend when locals also visit. The site is large and surrounded by parkland with trees to shade you as you walk between the temples. Much of the site is well preserved and there was some restoration taking place to rebuild some...

You can't miss this attraction. We saw during day and at night, and you should do that, it is amazing to see both. The temple is clean, still have reconstruction to be made because of the last earthquake, but you can have a good idea.

This place is busy and the surrounding area is a park. The walkways are tight so its hard to get a photo by yourself without being very patient. The larger temples having 4 internal shrines. If you're a foreigner you most likely will be stopped by the kids for a quick photo or they'll ask politely to practice English with... More
