Something cannot believe structure they way was build many years go with natural art work. Hindu art work - I was enjoying and dislike about really hot sun. Best morning tour recommended.

Visited this small mortuary temple after our visit to Borobudur. Worth a stop as part of the morning's tour as it is only minutes away by car. Mostly reconstructed though there are sine bits and pieces still on the ground. Not busy so you basically have it to yourself. If you haven't tried Lawak coffee, there is a vendor close... More

Not a big deal to visit this place. Very hot, less shade, avoid persuasive souvenir selling here, a lot of sellers are here.

A little temple. May be a place for ash in the past. There used to be a statue inside, but it is empty when being found for the first time. It is a part of Mendut temple tour. Only spent about 15 minutes here. Not a big temple, but it is a proof of history nonetheless.

Bawon temple is located in the village surrounded by houses. You can climb up stairs and walk around the temple. Beautiful engravings on the wall surfaces. 10 - 20 minute is enough here to see. It's better come and see this on your way to another sightseeing places.

On the way back from Borobudur stop at Pawon for 3 or 4 minutes. Pawon is well maintained and deserves the short visit

Something to visit while near Borobudur. Not worth purposely travelling from Yogyakarta for as it is too small.

Well, you have already visited Borobudur and probably is on your way to Mendut Temple, so make a quick stop at Pawon and visit the smallest of the three temples of the complex of Borobudur. These three temples are located on a straight line, suggesting a symbolic meaning lost upon the centuries. Pawon was built arount the 8th and 9th... More

This Buddhist temple is located 1km+ from Borobudur. It is enroute Jogja to Borobudur. A much smaller scale compared to Borobudur, it's very quiet and serene. A small admission fee (3,300 Rp) gives you access to Pawon and the other sister temple of Borobudur (Mendut, 3km from Borobudur), the 3 form a straight line. You have to get used to... More
