“Perfect for meditation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

This temple is quiet and not on the main trail. It's a very small place, and has a great vibe. Spent 4 hours here in the rain meditating in various sections all alone :)

“Unexpected awesome temple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

It is a temple near the famous Prambanan Temple . May be people all go to Prambanan Temple and I could have chance to visit awesome temple peacefully and quietly.. There were only 6 people including us when we visited it. It let me have the mood to see all the tradional Indonesian style statuess of the temples slowly. Frankly speaking, it was really well preserved.. Defintiely worth to take your time to visit this too when you visit the famous Prambanan Temple.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Nothing much to dislike. The temple area did not have a tour guide so you just have to do your own research. The structure is impressive.

“Temple in the Middle of Nowhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

This temple is a bit far out but worth the trouble getting to. There were hardly any tourists there when I visited. The temple is in pretty good shape probably because it hardly saw any visitors. It is a nice temple to visit. It has a 10000 IDR entrance fee if you just go to the north or south complex, for both its 20000 IDR.
