It is really easy to reach this place. The ticket fee also affordable. This place is really wide-open-space with lot of temple building. Basically the view just amazing but for me it will be more awesome when you come here in golden our especially evening until sunset period
A magnificent place to spend a lot of time. The areas around this temple are also good for a stroll. Make sure you are here on a non rainy day for the Sunset. The grounds also feature the Ramayana play which would cost you anywhere between 125k to 400k IDR and is only played on certain days.
You can enjoying every relief carving on the side of each temple.The best time to visit the place early morning or evening because during midday it tends to get too hot. For tickets, the price is still relatively cheap. It's not as big as Candi Borobudur, but it is still magnificent and good photo spot.
Apart from the temple, you can visit several new attraction for family around the area such as archery, cycling on a rope, 4D experience, or simply rent a bike and stroll around. The jamu cafe near the exit is also great. The souvenir area in the exit gate is actually quite a gem! They are very cheap and easy to bargain.
