Prambanan Temple Reviews & Ratings
Great place to visit to discover the rich history and culture of the area. There are just 2 downsides. First is that in order to exit you have to pass through about 3.5million shops, there is no other way. Also, on the way in and just before the exit you have sellers just pushing as hard as they can to sell you things at about 20x the price right outside for the same things. And the pressure is real, they will follow you for half a km and resist your polite no thanks dozens of times. I did however, enjoy leaving my wife 10 feet behind to fend 2 sellers off for a minute 😂
One of the biggest Hindu temple in Indonesia and UNESCO world heritage site, so definitely worth a visit. The structure of the temple is so artistic and historic. There are some guides that can lead to tell the history of this temple. In this place, you can also visit the other temples around. Very recommended place to visit in Yogyakarta. For foreign tourists there is a separate entrance and you pay a higher entrance fee. When you enter the grounds you can’t exit the same way - and you must go around. You can get a ride on the free shuttle or rent a bicycle for very cheap to take you to the other temples on the premises as the walk is quite far.
It's a magnificent place. I was there when Umbrella festivals was held. Crowds of people enjoyed this festival and cultural shows. This place has an easy access to parking lot, neat restrooms (but don't hope too much), and many food stalls whenever festivals are hosted. Often get traffic jammed in the evening (rush hour 4pm-6.30 pm)
Best choice for me of the three most-famous temples in Yogyakarta. Expect to pay like $25. It’s expensive, but well, it’s like it is. Inside the whole area, you can find the main one, but you can take a short walk (15’) and you will enjoy more places also outstanding like the really first one. Take your student card if you’re one.
I don't see this place as a worship place but as a heritage and culture. Better to visit this place at 4 pm then take a tour and take some pictures for about 2 hours. Then have dinner nearby, at 7 pm visit Ramayana Ballet Prambanan performance. You'll see how cool the building in the night and watch Ramayana story with wonderful Javanese music, dance and talented artists. Before enter the stadium we could get a free hot welcome drink to enjoy. The show is over at 9.30 pm but never bored because of their wonderful talent. A memorable visit ever in Jogja!
