I just found this temple from my car rental driver in jambi, after my 6th time of visiting Jambi. The temple complex was quite big, almost half of Prambanan temple. The place was quite clean and you could find souvenir shop and food stall there. Oh ya, the local provide bicycle for rent at very reasonable price (IDR 10.000 or... More

This type of structure is rather common in Vietnam at the Champa sites of central Vietnam. Old temples that have been destroyed and are being rebuilt with red bricks and some of the old pieces. My largest problem with this is, I can't be sure if the temples that now stand are a true reproduction of what was there. The... More

The Muarojambi Temple Complex was dated to 7A.D. and holds an important part of the Malay history. It is unique since the temples were built using bricks rather than volcanic rocks like most temples found in Indonesia. To reach the location is relatively easy from the Jambi city, we could rent a car from hotel and take us to the... More

This is an enormous archeological site, filled with semi-excavated temples. The historical importance can't be over emphasized and it is really very interesting to see. I recommend going from Jambi City by boat and returning by car as our group did. This is not to be missed.

You will not find anything but disappointed. This place is not a good place for traveller. It's look like so usual and not interesting. Needing more maintenance, arrangement, and revitalisation.

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.
