In compare with other temples in Yogya, this place is rather small but it's extremely attractive me with the location (near the center) and the way they reserve it. It's quite, peaceful and clean

We found the temple by accident after having breakfast while seeing through the map. The place is absolutely awesome and very clean. The entrance ticket is very cheap, 2k IDR only!

This is a smaller temple here in Yogyakarta. It is unique because it sits under ground level. If you want to watch our YouTube review, search "Martin Johnson Sambi Sari Yogyakarta". We enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. :)

This fairly recently discovered temple is set into a depression in the ground with stone steps leading down to it. There are interesting images carved into the stone. Worth a visit.

This temple is situated on half hour's drive from Yogyakarta. Better to hire a local cab as it doesn't have bus conectivity.

The temple is indeed well preserved, and intimate because it's not crowded with tourists (we were about the only people there during our short visit). Well worth the affordable ticket price (2,000 IDR for adult). Minor note: Have exact change ready at entrance. I handed...More
