Prambanan Temple, Yogyakarta Reviews

  • This is a really majestic place that makes you feel as if you were stopped in time. I strongly suggest to take a guide as the sculptures and carvings tell a beautiful story. Each of the big temples is dedicated to a different god and the smaller one to the animals they rode. It will be much more informative with the guide. You can buy a combined ticket to also see Borobudur, however it excludes the Sunrise trip which is well worth doing.

  • This Hinduism temple is magnificent. Around 45 minutes from the city by car. The best time to come is before 11am or above 3pm to avoid the heat, and don't forget to bring hat or umbrella especially during the rainy season. There will be a tour guide offered at the main gate who will explain about this place and the history. For those who like photography, this might be a very good place.

  • Stunning temple. Built around the 9th century, that it is still standing is a testament to how well it was built. Almost eerie as it gets dark but so worth it. A good photo spot, especially during sunset. Take the time to go around and take it all in. I'd also recommend a guide as they can explain the history of the temple.

  • Too many memories and mixed feelings. Such a majestic place. What i learned from Prambanan is, society will collapse.. however strong we ever think we are. Through natural disasters, wars, epidemic disease or anything else. The most important thing is how the next generation recognize us. Will they remember us as a great generation or a failed one.. will we leave this world with majestic relic, or with mountains of garbage..

  • Ending in Prambanan a tour through major temples in Yogyakarta, we took some time to stroll around the temples waiting for sunset. Nice chance to take pictures, but make up your mind early about the place you want to take, and possibly step up some stairs... Piece of advice, if you take outlines of the temples all the people will disappear...
