“Not a typical temple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

This temple is located in the slope of the mountain. Didnt seem to have access to public transportation system. Entrance fee is super cheap, like 4k IDR per person So, if you decide to go there ( you have to), better to rent a car from downtown solo. Try to avoid going there after 2pm, foggy and (might be) rainy. You may also want to go to the tea plantation, like 20 mins drive. There is a nice cafe too at the plantation (forget the name).

“Well preserved cultural historical site”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Sukuh temple is located in karanganyar regency which is near to my family's residence, the site is unique as the temple is resembling temples of mayan culture. Also this temple is famous with erotic carving which resembles fertility. If you love historical site, it is a worthy place to visit. Additionally....the view is spectacular

“Maia Temple look-a-like”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

The story of Cetho Temple is very interesting. You will get more knowledge after visiting this place. The architecture is very philosophical and the surrounding panorama is also good. If you go to Cetho Temple, don't miss this place.

“Interesting temple with beautiful surrounding”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

Nice view from the mountain. The temple looks like an old Maya temple

It is a very small temple, the steps are very high
