The visit in the Candi Sewu was a great experience, seeing it in real life. The visit will always be treasured. The stories behind the walls of temple are very interesting.

Candi Sewu is north of the main Prambanan complex, a 700m walk from the museum. You can take a ride if you like. Only very few of the tourist visit this temple what is strange because it the pretty large temple towers are something to see if you are so close by. You can go inside the main tower.

The admission is included in the Prambanan ticket.
We used the exit near the Sewu temple and walk via the north side back to the Poeri Devata Resort Hotel.

Allthough it's at the back of the grounds of Prembanan, people seem to miss it. Don't, because albeit small, it's very pretty. Take the minitrain.

We really enjoyed this temple. It was a short walk from the Prambanan main complex. Intricate carvings and solitude were enjoyed with the sunset. When the weather is good, there are very nice views of Merapi in the background.
