Paid 325K for entrance, is pretty expensive to me. Not a very big complex. Well maintained temple complex.

As an Indonesian, i think the 2017 price for sightseeing the prambanan is a bit pricey. The sorrounding's improvement is good. But still its not worth the price. But if you are a temple lover, it may worth.

This is an amazing collection of Hindu temples, gradually being rebuilt after many were destroyed by an earthquake. It's estimated that there could be up to 1,000 temples in this area. Well worth a visit.

I am trying to time our visit to Prambanan to see the temple and the Ramayana Ballet. I understand the ballet start at 7:30pm. Working backward I got the following timetable: 4:00pm : Leave Jogjakarta 4:30pm : arrive at Prambanan. Allow 2 hours to explore temples 6:30pm : dinner 7:30pm : Show starts. Would this works?

Possibly,provided you get there by 4.30. 2 Hrs is really enough.All the best.

Hello. I'm planning a trip with a tentative two day stop over in JOG. I'm thinking that one day we will do Borobudur and then the following we will do Prambanan temples and explore the walled city center. Does this sound like sufficient time? How much time do you expect we will spend at Prambanan?

more than enough. Just adjust both for one day. Be there in Borobudur at the sunrise and then visit Pambanan.
