“Fantastic temple in a stunning location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Everything about visiting this temple is great. The ride up there goes through absolutely gorgeous rice fields and other scenery. It is such a quiet, secluded place. The temple is on many levels and very beautiful and atmospheric. A short walk away is another temple in the forest. They both have many offerings scattered around. Best not to go on a Sunday if you want some quiet or photographing time, as many locals visit on Sundays.

“Small Candi on top of beautiful mountain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

If you like tropical mountain view, you will be satisfied with this. The Candi it self a little bit small. You must pass some dangerous u turn up to hill. But the scenery is fresh, green, and remote.

“Amazing view :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

like: amazing view. The road to get here was deadly, it was so steep. You just gotta have faith in your driver. It was a very nice temple.
Dislike: not enough information on the temple itself.

“an exotic one”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

An ancient temple on a top of a mountainous area. It has wall carving telling about love making arts. Kind of Kamasutra in India, Javanese call it Asmaranggama.
Perfect place for hiking or camping also. But remember, temperature is far below the surrounding cities.

“OK, nothing really special.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

This temple is nicer than Candi Sukuh. It's quite big and has 13 different levels. Again, it's nothing really special, for us it is not a must in a trip around Indonesia. The way to the temple is really nice, through tea plantations. Quite impressive. FYI: The guide told us all of the tea plantations are from a chinese company and the workers only get paid a small amount to pick the tea.
