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.

As i am not religous i normally give churches a wide berth, but the unusual nature of this one intrigued me and the views from the top were great. The path up is very steep, but only about 200m long. 4x4 cars offer to drive you up and down. Had it been wet i may have considered it. We got there via a taxi from borobudur for 75krp return as he had to wait for us. Entrance fee was 25k each, and 10k rp parking fee for the taxi.

Please can you change the name of this attraction as this place of prayer is not a chicken. The design is of a Dove with a crown on its head. Depicting PEACE for all. This place also isn’t a church, it’s a house of prayer. The residents find it insulting calling it a chicken. So please change the title of this attraction. Do your research correctly.

Not worth a visit if you’re tight for time. Nothing very interesting, although you will get to up to the crown and see the sights from the top. There also free snack as part of the ticket admission. When we were there, they were also repainting the “chicken” - I’d have preferred they not as the structure now looks rather cartoon-y. Won’t miss out if you don’t visit this place.

This place was really unique, if you going to Borobudur temple, spare some time to go here. Really good to know the history, and also spare some time to pray here. Even it called as a church, actually they said "house of prayer for every Nation" so every religion can prey here, as long as you feel comfortable.

I spent only for 45 minutes in Bukit Rhema bcs I need to go travel to another beautiful places in Jogja but I feel very Comfy yet secured with the health protocol from the staff during this corona virus issues , they really handle it very serious , such as we were devided per group to tour the whole area maybe 4 persons per group and lucky me when I was there , not so many people visited the place and hand sanitizers are provided every corner area and staff encouraged all visitor to use it. I really happy and feel relief with that kind of rules in this remote location.
And I would like to thank you to Mas Afif who give us the warmest welcome and his sincere hospitality and give us complete explanation such a great communicator abt the history and answered our some questions there in the first time and thank you to Mas Aveq too who incharged on the floor before the roof top , he is so polite and friendly and very care bcoz he remind us to be careful on the stair to the rooftop. And guess what it was amazing on the roof top, I was amazed of how great thou art. I can see beautiful view up there and Borobudur view but they set limited time to be there but it was okay..
so my 45 minutes is priceless , meet awesome people with sincere hospitality and with best view up there and new historical story that I never known . Thank you so much

The architect who designed this building was not very proficient, when he wanted to go up to the roof top his head had to bow because it was very low

if you travel to Jogja this is well worth a trip for a few hours.
I went here when we traveled to the BoroBudur Buddhist temple. After the Buddhist temple our driver Juan (can be hired through many apps) took us to the 'Church of the Doves' it was near a small village where you have to get a jeep up to the top of the hill (would recommend the jeep as you can walk but its very very steep) the weather was hot but the forest offered some great shade!
The church its self was a bit tired but great to see and the views from the head were spectacular.
There is a small cafe in the tail feathers which does some traditional Indonesian food, sosis bakar is always a good choice (sausage on a stick) .
you can sit and eat and enjoy the spectacular views.
there is a religiuos element to the building and they respect many faiths and provide private prayer rooms in the cold interior.
I bought several items from the little stalls outside the church and posed for pictures with the stall owners children as they don't see British people often.
Very cheap to see and not too busy (unlike some of the attractions in Jogja) it is well worth the car ride, its not far away from the Buddhist temple but it is off the beaten track in the forest.

Do not know what to make out of this place. Think it would have been more respectful if they had built it as a observation tower. Nice view though.

A place to be visit... But u have to walk from the ticketing counter up to the main entrance approximately 300m and quite tired when reaching the main entrance.

You can have a very nice view from the top.

Actually is not a chicken... it suppose to be called Pigeon... Burung Merpati in local language...
