As an international tourist, this place is a rip off. Be sure to come early morning to avoid all the Indonesian school classes because they hunt you down for photos. They literally don't stop even if you ask them to.

I was there for marathon event of my company. It was my first time visit Prambanan Temple. Worth to see if it's your first time, but I don't think I will come again for my next trip because there are so many temples in Yogyakarta...More

Recommend go late afternoon so you can 1. Walk around both sets of temple complexes. They are about apart and when we went everyone went to first and only a couple of people visited the second very large complex. Really fascinating Budhist and Hindu complexes...More

A definite 'must see' for anyone visiting Yogyakarta, and about 40 minutes away by car. Built around the same time as Borobudur and from the same material, this Hindu temple is stunning. It has been partially rebuilt following an earthquake in 2008, and the central...More

Beautiful, decorative stone temples that have been lovingly restored. Visit made extra special by students that wanted to practise their English and gave us a guided tour free of charge, teaching us all about the history and origins of each temple. They said they come...More

No words to describe this temple complex. Its beautiful and totally unimaginable how it could have been completed in the 9th century. Although it looks smaller than the Angkor Wat in Siam Reap, Cambodia this is really beautiful as good restoration work has managed to...More

The temple has been well restored and is surrounded by a nice park. The grounds around the individual temples are flat and easy to walk around. Going up into the mail temple requires climbing some steep stairs (going down them is the more difficult). Enjoyed...More

We visited on a Wednesday afternoon and the site was fairly quiet, I believe it gets busy of a weekend when locals also visit. The site is large and surrounded by parkland with trees to shade you as you walk between the temples. Much of...More

You can't miss this attraction. We saw during day and at night, and you should do that, it is amazing to see both. The temple is clean, still have reconstruction to be made because of the last earthquake, but you can have a good idea.

This place is busy and the surrounding area is a park. The walkways are tight so its hard to get a photo by yourself without being very patient. The larger temples having 4 internal shrines. If you're a foreigner you most likely will be stopped...More

I am trying to time our visit to Prambanan to see the temple and the Ramayana Ballet. I understand the ballet start at 7:30pm. Working backward I got the following timetable: 4:00pm : Leave Jogjakarta 4:30pm : arrive at Prambanan. Allow 2 hours to explore temples 6:30pm : dinner 7:30pm : Show starts. Would this works?

Hello. I'm planning a trip with a tentative two day stop over in JOG. I'm thinking that one day we will do Borobudur and then the following we will do Prambanan temples and explore the walled city center. Does this sound like sufficient time? How much time do you expect we will spend at Prambanan?

more than enough. Just adjust both for one day. Be there in Borobudur at the sunrise and then visit Pambanan.
