Small temple 3km walk up hill from ticket entrance. Nice vistas over rice paddies on ascent and return, step steps at end. Disappointing that vandals had carved into stones, and all Buddas were damaged. Long drive and walk for a small temple. The silver lining was that we spent 90mins exploring the rice paddies and plantings as a "detour" on the way up - a local farmers guided us (didn't even expect a tip, so was genuinely pleased to get one). Detour was not sign pathed and only feasible because my travel companion spoke Bahasa.

If you have more time, this is another site which optional to visit, take about an hour or less to explore and hike along the rich country side - passing lots of paddy field, children playing football, climbing the tamarind tree... if you lucky may stumble some water buffalo too. Recommend for those who seek and wants to know the life hood of local village and highest point is restore old temple. The view overlooking the rolling hills and terrace of rice field is very captivating.

As others have said, this small but fine temple is under reconstruction, but the walk and climb through the village and fields of rice, chilies, sweet potatoes plus forest gardens (growing cloves, jack fruit) is exquisite. A group of men were training their racing pigeons in the village when we passed. Fascinating.

Thanks for exploring, we have many panoramic spots like Selogriyo temple. Pronosutan View and Joglomenoreh are closed to Borobudur temple. Thanks to being together preserving the nature

My 5 star goes to the rice fields on the way. The temple itself is under renovation at the moment but it is still worth a visit if you want to see rural life on the rice fields and in the village. Lovely area!

Came to visit this well hidden gem. Totally absorbed by the beauty of this place. Trekked through the padi fields and interact with the friendly locals. It is totally amazing! Love this place. The temple is under reconstruction but it is a really must see place in Borobudur region.

Thank you for taking a part to conserve our nature. There are plenty of beautiful places like Selogriyo, in Java island. Happy to welcome everyone to come and explore others, like Pronosutan View and JogloMenoreh new spots.

The Selogriyo temple (small Hindu temple) is currently under reconstruction (totally taken apart and rebuilt), but the walk up there is wonderful, with sprawling terraces similar to those in Bali, yet far less crowded! The walk is gentle in terms of slope but quite far (30 mins each way).

The way up to the temple through the small village and past the rice fields is nice. Be prepared for a 1,5 km walk to reach the temple. The temple is however currently under renovation - so there is actually no temple at the moment, only piles of stones. It was unclear to us, what had happened to the temple. However the view from the site of the temple is beautiful as well as the walk up.

Certainly one of the best rice terraces we have seen, better than the famous Jatiluwih rice terrace in Bali. You are able to go into the rice terrace itself, getting quite close to the buffalos ploughing the paddy field. You can see how local farmers live, they are actually very friendly!
We went just after breakfast and we did not see any tourist. The 2 km hike was not difficult, there were slopes here and there but not steep. As other reviews said, the temple is currently being restored so there is not much things to see for the temple. The rice terrace is certainly the highlight!

Although you can do the hike by yourself, highly recommended to get locals to guide as they will be able to bring you inside the rice terrace, they do look a bit like a maze!

Beautiful temple Second choice for visiting after Borobudur temple,
The temple is beautiful but small but has many meanings.
Access to the temple is quite far, but I enjoyed it because there is a natural view that spoils our eyes.

We went with the knowledge that the temple was closed for renovations, but really we want to see the rice terrace more than the temple.

From the carpark area, you walk through a stretch of locals' residences which offer nice photo opportunities themselves. There is an entrance fee (Rp. 20,000) at the start of the trail. A short walk later you reach a bend which extends your view to the curved rice terraces below. We did not encounter any other visitors or tourists at this attraction (if it can be called that) until near the end of our walk, so it was a welcoming break from crowded areas. Do protect yourself with the necessary gear though, as the place is pretty exposed to the sun. Wearing shoes is recommended as there are some uneven ground and trail.

We veered right at the start of the walk, and was then directed to take a right turn towards the direction of the temple. Since the temple was closed, we made a looped turn to take a different route back to the entrance.

All in all, a pretty scenic place to spend 1-2 hours and escape from the hustle of the city if you don't mind the sun.
