You only pay for Rp. 2000 for the ticket This is huge area and a small temple in the middle. It's beautiful if you take picture from the top.

Our driver suggested we stop here as it was near the airport and was worth a short/quick stop. We liked it, its not as grand as the other temples in the area but was quite nice.

The location is easy to find but it would be a bit crowded once you reach the complex. It's a big complex with almost no tree. So its advisable to visit here not in the daylight...

Candi sambi sari is a unique temple, it's place underground. The entrance fee is very cheap. A place that you must see if you traveling to jogjakarta.

a beautiful temple that is located below the ground surface, if you travel to Yogyakarta, particularly in the eastern Sleman Yogyakarta please visit this temple, a historical heritage is priceless

Sambisari temple is one of some hindu's temple in Yogyakarta. Sambisari temple is special temple because the temple is on lower level ground. The temple is not big. But is special. The ticket to entrance is cheap too. For indonesian just Rp. 2000/person, I think for the foreigner is similar. Sambisari temple is near from the airport

This temple is lower than the landscape and that gives it a special feeling. Interesting details. Very well kept.

It was amazing to know that this temple was once buried and had been rediscovered by chance. After visiting the temple, be sure to walk around the outskirts too, where you'll find other relics that were excavated and awaiting restoration

As an Indian I was simply thrilled and awed by this temple. To think that this temple is more than a thousand yrs old although discovered only few years back accidentally! The surroundings are clean and the lawns are well kept. The temple itself is very nice and definitely worth a visit.

Thank consulramesh
