It was situated about 3 km away from Borobudur temple. This place is quiet with less tourists. The walls are full of beautiful sculptures. The entrance fee is very cheap, only Rp 3,500 and with the same ticket, we can visit Pawon temple for free.

Mendut temple is around 2 -3 km away from Borobudur temple. Me and my friend easily reached there by the help of our online map. The entry fee is Rp 3500 which remain still expensive for what you see when you reach the temple. Just before Mendut temple one can visit the Medut Budhist Monastery which is far more interesting and it's free as well.

I took a look at the temple from the outside on the way back from Borobudur. Famous in the area, it is good example of the architectural skills of those days!

Mendut Buddhist Monastry has a beautiful prayer hall, a well manuicured garden with many statues of buddhas. It includes a large sleeping buddha, a statute of Lord Buddha sitting in lotus position in front a gigantic stupa, 4 faced buddha statue, stupas alongside ponds and live roosters. This monastery consists big and small meditation halls. Around the monastry, trees are well grown around the monastery. I could not name some but there were bodhi, acacia, jackfruit , mango tree and i spotted jasmine with white & orange petals.

Walking out of the monastry gate is rows of shops selling souvenirs, behind the bayan tree, on the right stands a single tower structure, the Candi Mendut (Mendut Temple).
It stands on a high platform accessible by a flight of stairs. There are many beautiful reliefs and carvings that decorate the exterior walls and staircase . Walk up to the main room, it has 3 seated Buddhist figures, each carved from a single block of stone. The central Buddha, Vairochana, holds his hands in dharmachakra mudra, a teaching gesture, and plants his two feet firmly on a double-lotus pedestal. Flanking him are the bodhisattvas Avalokiteshvara and Vajrapani .

Do devote some time to Mendut Temple & Mendut Buddhist Monastery ,it is worth a visit if you are in Borobudur !!!!

An enormous banyan tree sits over the corner of the grassy park in which this small but impressive temple sits. Doesn't take a long time to see, and there is a nominal fee of a few dollars. Lots of hawkers in the parking lot.

Go here at the crack of dawn, when it opens and people are yet to arrive. Absorb the quietness, its very soothing, very meditative. The bigger one is overwhelming in its size and precision and design. This one feels closer to divinity.

Our small tour group visited Candi Mendut, an impressive small 9th century Buddhist temple that lines up with Borobudur and Candi Pawon. Next to the temple is the Mendut Monastery with beautiful statues of Buddha and Boddhisatvas. Several reflecting pools and beautiful courtyards. A great place to sit, relax, and meditate.

Not far from Borobudur (about 3 km), you can find Mendut Temple. It is said that, among 3 temples (Borobudur, Mendut, Pawon), Mendut is the oldest one.

Mendut is a Buddha temple. It has 3 big statues inside the temple. The Buddha is in sitting position, rather than in lotus position. The other two statues are Boddhisatva Avalokitesvara on the left and Boddhisatva Vajrapani on the right side.
