Do not visit if you have any compassion. The temple has a small pen with 5/6 elephants. When we visited they were chained by three legs to the floor. They were swaying showing their boredom and poor treatment. They also do horrific elephant rides. The...More

If you can go for sunrise, do so. Bring a flash light and closed walking shoes. You have 92 stairs to climb. Some are steeper than others. It will be a memorable experience. This is the largest Buddhist temple in Indonesia

Sorry, I only just saw your question. About 20 min. Check the weather forecast. I just went at the normal opening time, as there was so much cloud the sunrise wouldn’t have been very rewarding. Bear in mind that although it... More
