Candi Jago is set within a residential area with an elementary school at one side. It's a good thing that it is surrounded by a fence, otherwise, as anyone who went through childhood can attest, this temple would be perfect for climbing and clambering over - which I did! The reliefs showing Buddhist scenes are covered with deposits which make... More

well, i just shocked when i first saw the temple. it not looks like a temple anymore. but if you like an Indonesian Hystory, you have to see this temple. it a combination between Buddhist and Hindu tradition. it's a temple to remind their king.

I came to malang for many many times but never know that it has this. It places in the middle of small kampung and cannot feel the spectacular of rthis historical temple of a very huge kingdom If.you like history and embrace the ancient temple, you might feel this temple is amazing. Mostly if you like photography

The waterfall is located in a big park with plenty of space to trek. Tourist attraction apart, this waterfall is quite a spectacle.

The ruins of Jago temple offer an interesting look into ancient culture especially for those who are a little more patient with their time. Hidden in the images of these inscriptions & bas reliefs are famous stories from ancient times which were as common to people then as Snow White is to people today. These carefully selected stories tell tales... More

I may rate some of these temples overly high but I really like them. I also like that the parts that are falling apart are being preserved for future repairs and possible restoration.

Most of the artistic heritage of the tropics was rendered in perishable materials: wood, rattan, woven pandan, or even thatch or leaves. Therefore, most of it has been lost, and its accomplishments have largely been wiped from view. The ruins of Candi Jago offer some hint of what once was. The stone base survives and along its sides is carved... More
