Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The temple is very small, and it is empty inside. However, the sculptures on the wall are still very impressive. It is still worth to visit if you have more spare time. The entrance ticket of Rp 3,500 per person is also valid for the entrance to Mendut Temple, likewise if you purchase the ticket at Mendut Temple, the same ticket can be used to enter Pawon Temple. A ticket for visiting two temples, just keep the ticket safely.

This small temple dominates the tiny square of Borobudur village. If you paid for Mendut Temple, this one is included. In the village there are the usual hawkers, but also a cool place were a woman was making coconut sugar and some delicious cookies.

Our small tour group stopped to view the temple but did not enter because heavy restoration is under way, and there are safety concerns for visitors at the site. One can appreciate the grandeur of the temple, however. It will be a 4 or 5 star when the restoration is complete. I highly recommend strolling around the nearby Pawon Village, built back from a nasty earthquake in 2008. We visited a tofu factory and a soybean cracker factory and both were very interesting.

Our driver brought me here when my colleague had to take care of some business; we parked and walked to the temple because of extensive street repairs/construction. There's a minimal entrance fee. This is a single structure in a small park surrounded by the town-- I enjoyed seeing the town just as much as I enjoyed seeing this lovely historic temple. There are several shops on the periphery selling a variety of handicrafts, and there's a very interesting coffee shop featuring "luwak kopi" -- the famous civet coffee-- close by. Altogether an interesting stop on a busy day of touring Central Java.

Beautiful little temple, close to Borobudur - make sure you stop by and visit this temple too if you're visiting Borobudur.

Trust me! This is small temple but important for buddhist people even until now especially in every Vesak Day.

Candi means "temple" and Pawon means "kitchen". This temple is not for cooking of course but that name is metaphor for burning the desires!

The architecture is blending between Hindu and Buddhist styles and inside is empty room.

Candi Pawon is surrounded by moeslim village, near the mosque, and not far from the church. It nears also with very interesting home coffee industry that only processing the famous Kopi Luwak from Java.

The people is smiling and sometimes local ladies are trying to sell the souvenirs. Sometimes they don't understand the word " no, thank you" but just keep saying mates! Then they gonna give up.

Very recommended temple!

On the way to Borobudur temple, we passed Mendut temple and stopped at Candi Pawon to take some photos. This is a very small temple, completely dwarfed by Borobudur nearby. Entrance fees are also very cheap compared to Borobudur. Not many visitors here as most tourists just bypass this temple on their way to see the majestic Borobudur.

I had a stop at the shrine and the nearby Buddhist monastery after visiting Borobudur at Sunrise. It was a nice quite time to visit with the sun still not to hot and I could enjoy the site almost for myself with few minutes to breath under the beautiful tree near the shrine and again inside the monastery gardens.

The temple is small but lots of it’s carvings are still intact.

The monastery is also quite small but beautifully kept.

The street vendors near the shrine can be a little pushy.
