Ancient temple

The original temples were very old. How ever, most of them were destroyed in earthquake and have been reconstructed.

These temples have been assiduously restored over the decades first by the Dutch and then by the Indonesian government with assistance from international bodies like UNESCO. They've all done a terrific job. Walking here takes you back to the time when the area had a Hindu kingdom and was Very well connected to nearby kingdoms like those in India. It... More

Biggest Muslim country in the world, but they take pride in the Buddhist legacy. Nice. My girlfriend is Indonesian, she paid 30k, me 225k. Takes a moment to get used to, but honestly, 15€ for such a thing of beauty isn't much. And this way locals learn to appreciate their heritage. Nicely done

We spent nearly 2 hours here, longer than expected. We didn't get a guide so didn't get to learn much about the history behind the buildings but took a lot of amazing photos. Gorgeous details and definitely worth a visit!

A few of my friends and I visited this site in March 2017. We were supprised about how well preserved the site is, even though there are several apparently destroyed buildings. These were apparently destroyed by varuous earthquakes. There is a project in place to rebuild the destroyed structures. Instead of paying for a guide at the front entrance, go... More

Visited this place at opening time (6am) which I would recommend as the place gets packed by 8 and sun is quite hot by then. The site is kept very clean and well managed. Temples are stunning. Reliefs throughout depict the story of the Ramayana, the Hindu epic tale of Rama and Sita. Guide most definitely needed to get the... More

A historical temple located in Jogja, this place offer a sight into Indonesian's​ civilisation when Hindu was the largest religion. Amazing view at night as well.
