It was for business that I visited Jambi with my colleague. A local driver offered us to go one part of the site nearest to Jambi, that took about 30-60 minutes from the city. As it was a very huge complex, it has bicycle rentals around the gate. Need to rent a comfortable one, as it took quite a long... More

The temples and ruins in the complex are older than Borobudur temple.They are relatively in good condition.Concrete pavement inside the complex helps visitor to enjoy it if not interesting to explore each temple or ruins.I suggest you to have mosquito repeller before coming in,bring mineral water because it's very humid,put your hat & sunglass on or take the umbrella.

This temple complex is clean and well maintained. It has deteriorated and partly restored by the local government. There are actually several temples in the area and it is best to be explored using bicycles rented at the entrance. I suggest you stick to the mountain bike since the trail is quite bumpy. Some of the remote temples that we... More

A very auspicious Buddhist monuments, which is lesser in publicity compared to the famed Borobudur over in Java. A good information is available in the museum situated inside the heritage site in Muaro Jambi Temple. Comes in handy with bicycle for rental to take your own pace to visit the whole complex or you may opt for tour guide with... More

Likes include the small museum and the layout of this historic site. Missing are signs identifying ruins and published information. Dislike the mob at the entrance to rent bikes or becaks -- neither are needed.

very nice and reminds of My Son, the temple complex is large and gives an impression of the magnitude of the place in its hay days. Impressive with a little more though this is can become a world level tourist site

You are not supposed to thirsty because there are many "pedagang asongan" in here. Some temples was rehabilitated. Muaro Jambi is the best Buddhist culture in my hometown... More
