This site in combination with Borobudur makes a great day trip. It is fairly compact so not much walking is involved. You can walk into the main buildings to see some well preserved statues. There was a group of women who insisted on constantly rubbing one of the statues which seemed really wierd. Perhaps that is the thing to do..... More

OMG.....you must see this. Very crowded. Tourists go through a seperate entrance 200,000 Rupiah plus or minus a guide 200,000 Rupiah. A HUGE complex of 250 temples. most in ruins being rebuilt. The main Hindu temples of Shiva etc in the center. I would rate this better than Borobudur.

The Prambanan temple complex will fill you with awe when you see it. These are just amazing temples with so much of history behind them. It's an absolute must-see. Might be useful to take a guide when you get in (they're available when you get in). It was definitely a very memorable trip to see it.

This temple is more ideal for kids and old people compared to borobudur as there are not alot of steps and easy to move around. Amazing sculptures and would recommend going on a cool day.

Would have loved to stay and watch the... More

There were temples on the complex and each has different statues. It was really beautiful and the scenery also really great.

It's an excellent feeling to visit such a heritage place during the sunset. It is an old heritage Hindu Temple built up during King Sailendra dynasty. All temples are nicely built up with enriched architecture. The beauty of surroundings are awesome

Went here on a rainy afternoon so when the rain has stopped and the sun is about to set, there's no crowd. No line on the counter and when i just said "satu" to the cashier she charged me for only about 15k idr instead of the 200k idr for foreigners since i looked indonesian. The best shot is on... More
