+ Epic epic epic heritage you could probably ever see
+ The temple is nearby Prambanan Temple
+ Boko Temple Area was actually a village placed on top of the hill, where in the free space of the temple, you could see the whole Jogjakarta from here
+ In here you can find that at that time, they were already have a water system, a bathing place, a hall, prayer temple and gate way in and out
+ Since its located uphill, even though the sun feels hot but the wind and the mountain breeze
+ The whole area of this temple is breathtakingly amazing, definitely worth your time.
+ The good thing about this temple is that no one really aware about this temple unlike they know Borobudur / Prambanan, so it’s nice to have a serenity when you just wanna enjoy this beautifully amazing heritage.

Recommended place for you who loves anything historical!
If you come by to Jogjakarta, you can add this temple in one of your temple-hopping list. 

Tips:
If you wanna do the temple-hopping, start from Prambanan Temple, they have free pickup facility to take you and pick you from Prambanan to Boko Temple.

We can use Trans Jogja as transportation to Prambanan Temple, only IDR 3000 and pay IDR 45000 per person to go to Ratu Boko Temple and Prambanan Temple, with shuttle.
Cool weather and sunset view, very beautiful for sightseeing and photography.

We headed to Ratu Boko after our morning trip to Prambanan temple. Reached there around 3 pm. We took the stairs and walked to Ratu Boko. Enjoyed the green surroundings and the historical sites. The weather was good on the day we went there. There is a big field on top of the hill. Kids can happily run about and play there. It is also a good place to snap photos during the sunset. We had complementary snacks at the cafeteria as it was part of our ticket fees and enjoyed the sunset view after returning from the hill.

did you know the kingdom that build Prambanan and Borobudur came from these place?
Even it's only a ruin now, but the site are awesome. the mixed between green grass and dark stone are mesmerizing. There's a pool in the back of these site that not many people know was used as the princess bath pool in the past.. Great for photography background and great view to sunset, Mt Merapi (only before 9am) and Prambanan temple. worth to see..
