Located in the village of Mendut, this Buddhist Monastery dates back to the ninth century. One of the three main Buddhist temples, this monastery is built in line with the temples of Borobudur and Pawon, with it being the oldest. With a number of stories and mythological characters adorning its walls, the architecture of the temple is spectacular to say the least. The test of time has taken away parts of this beautiful structure like parts of the walls and roof, but the beauty of the temple remains unparalleled. All the Buddhist rituals and prayers are conducted here. When you are in the city, make it a point to pay this temple a visit.
