Sure, the temple is not that big. But it's a really good attempt to preserve the whole place; the village, the lake, and the temple itself (because we know it's hard to preserve something, yeah?). Guide was informative. We had to rent a small traditional...More

The place is not that special, but worth a visit if you're in Garut. The entrance is Rp 5.000, but you have to pay another Rp 4.000 to use the raft if you want to see the temple.

The attraction is so so only. We enjoyed the ride on the raft to cross over to see the Candi. The raft is very unique. There is only one small temple.
