Most of temples around are ruined by earthquakes. This beautiful temple survived and shows history. Very well arranged garden. Very big and tall tree which was motivated to the movie Avatar.

After visited all the big and small temples in yogya, plaosan temple is my second favorite (first is ratu boko which need~10USD entrance fee which is expensive) to come for enjoying the peaceful surrounding.

Smaller than Prambanan temple but equally as amazing. Not fully restored yet either which gives a different perspective of the work that was involved in building these amazing temples. Great for photos as there are no tourists here and they just as for a donation rather than an entry fee.

You can still see the sands within some of the stones piles (the surrounding stupas or temples actually), some of them without the sands, some of them already halfway reconstructed. You can also see 10ish statue on a pendadop, with different levels of reconstructions. The reliefs on the two main buildings also differ but require a close eyes

Not far from Prambanan, but we were the only visitors on a Saturday when Prambanan was packed. Just spectacular, even if smaller. Two nicely restored large temples with nearly 250 smaller ones surrounding the site. Peaceful setting that you can enjoy while taking some beautiful photos. Don't miss it.

Interesting stop on the way back, worth the 15mn detour to get there. And it is quite quick too, so no need to take a guide or stay long if you are tired (it usually comes at the end of the day...)
