This is really worth the trip. The architecture is very different from all the other temples you will see in Java and the location on 2000 meters above see level gives you a nice cool climate. Also good for walks in the nearby wood.

Cetho Temple actually is a really great place to be visit, but not on rainy season especially January. It's very foggy. However, during the other 11 months, it's worth to visit Cetho Temple especially on the sunny day. You'll take great pictures right there. They need more public transportation because it's a little bit far from center of Solo.

Located atop Mt Lawu, it takes about 1.5 hrs drive from the busier parts of Solo. The drive up is steep but still accessible via taxi. A full car might be too heavy though. The view of tea plantation and valleys along the way are very calming. There is a jeep entrance fee of Rp 5000 + parking Rp 3000 and Candi Cetho entrance fee of Rp 10,000. Once you arrive you have to climb a flight of steep stairs before you are able to see the rest of the temple. Each level of the temple starts with two fan-like gate frames - very unique. The view from the top is pretty spectacular and underrated. You will enjoy the cooler air here and don't miss out on Candi Sukuh which is located about 15 mins away downhill.

Located on top of Mount Lawu. Scenary was good.

This temple was different if were to compare wit Prambanan. From its entrance, there are severel levels before reaching the top where Hindus do their prayer.

The landscape is well maintained and made me feel like in royal garden.

The view from the top level was incredible.

The temple area is stretched on a terraced land and built at the end of the Majapahit kingdom under the rule of King Brawijaya V. In one of the terrace there is a stone structure with a sun-shaped sculpture depicting Surya Majapahit, a symbol of the kingdom of Majapahit. This temple was first discovered as a stone ruins with 14 terraces. silent, silent, cold, makes us remember the Lord and make us closer to the day-to-day nature..
