Then you can walk round the grounds and see the most magnificent old tree, see... More

The courtyard besides Candi Mendut near all souvenirs stores is often missed by tourists. As this temple is near my resort Amata Borobudur (5mins walk), we chanced upon it the second time we visited.

Visited December 2016 with friends. If you want a temple all by yourself, then visit Mendut Temple. The entrance fee is around IDR4K.
