Worth to visit. It was buried 8 meters below the ground and unearthed during 1970's. This clearly indicates the ashes/sands from Mount Merapi covering such historical sites, layer by layer over many hundred years. So there may be many such buried temples underground and Mount...More

It was off the beaten track and close to the airport. We had to literally trek down to this recently excavated temple. It wasn't overrun with tourists, so we had the temple to ourselves. Very quite and peaceful.

This temple is close to the airport, and is not as easy to access as Prambanan, but for me it was worth the trip. The temple is 3.5km away from the airport, where you can get by a bus. From there on, you can try...More

With the reviews and photographs, there is some confusion about which temple is which. There's (I think) a Sari Temple and a Sambisari Temple. Some of the photographs and reviews posted on the Sari Temple listing actually belong over where in the Sambisari review spot....More

This temple is very unique, located below the land (you have to go down through stairs to reach the temple) makes the temple look beautifully from above. I think, best view is in the morning during the sunrise. Many people do some exercises in the...More
