“Peace”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

There was nobody here except us when we visited, so we really got a great sense of the place without being bustled by crowds.

“A must if you are in Prambanan Temple”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Despite located like 1km away from the main area, this is a must to visit. Simply beautiful.

tips- the train ride is FOC for foreigners since foreigners already paid high entrance fee

“Inside Prambanan, Is worth seeing for sure”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

The temple is inside Prambanan compelx and it is still under restoration. You could walk around 1km on foot from main temple or you may use the temple transport.

But in general if you have made to Prambanan, try to use the opportunity and see this one too. It is a world heritage by the way.

“Soak up the atmosphere.”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

You have to walk a fair distance from the main Prambanan Shiva temple to reach this site, but I thought it was worth the effort. There was absolutely nobody there, so I was able to enjoy the ancient stones and wonder about the people who built the temple. You can still enter the main candi, though the statues are gone, but for a little while, you can enjoy that Indiana Jones feeling.

“Should not be missed”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

It seems that few visitors to Prambanan bother to check out this temple site. Which is great since you can take your time to explore the ruins without the hassle of crowds.
