“Beautiful walk”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

The temple at the end your 30-45 minute walk is small but pretty. The highlight is the journey to and from there. The little village, the people working in the rice paddies, the chillies and other plants growing on the borders, the boys racing their pigeons, the butterflies and buffalo made the afternoon memorable for all of us. It's not an arduous trek, but a pleasant stroll along a path. The temple itself is tiny, with heads missing off carvings etc., but it is set in a pretty little garden with a lovely view.

“Temple not that interesting, though trail to it absolutely amazing”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

It is a small Hindu temple, also not in great condition. However, the trail to the temple is breathtaking! It is surrounded by rice paddies, which makes it a well-worth visit. It is about a 45 minutes walk to the temple from a village in the neighbourhood. We had a guide (Golan) for the afternoon showing us the tofu making and pottery villages and this temple.

“Shocking Discovery”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

in middle of 2005, i was told by a friend that a hidden sites of Hindu temple inclusive Java paradise still kept well by rural community, that was great my first touched down at Selogriyo
Green paddies, a sang birds all day, charm friendly smile by inhabitant and peaceful environment that hard to find recently, so this is one of our mission to globally introduce kind of this hidden site, even much larger than what you read on travel book, visit us / travistour.com

“A journey back in time”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

The walk to the temple is half the experience. You walk up a steep path winding through fields of rice,vegetables and chillies.The views of the sloping terraces are just amazing.
The temple itself is small but as you look up at the mist clad hills above you understand why this spot was chosen for a temple
