They may be similar to others but this is not a reason to not visit. Very close to Jogjakarta and very accessible. Very beautiful , wonderful architecture and even better if you can see performance of the nearby ballet with the temples in the background.

Interesting architecture, much of the buildings have been restored and reassembled due to earthquakes. Still a nice place to walk around see 9th century architecture. Extremely busy on weekends, with tons of school kids.

I was at the temple close to evening time. The best direction to take photos of yourself with the temples will be from the back. While walking out towards the exit, you can take a nice overview of all the temples.

I would recommended to hire a driver for the day. But many tourist rented scooter to move around as it is much cheaper. Just be careful as traffic is rather busy and the roads are quite narrow
