Ancient Temple
Oct 2018 • Business
A 2-hour trip to Cangkuang Temple is very impressive, a small temple and the only one that has to cross a small river using a bamboo boat, with views of the surrounding rice fields reminiscent of ancient stories

The Small Temple in Garut
May 2018 • Friends
Cangkuang temple is a small temple in Garut. This place is unique place because to visit Cangkuang temple you have across the lake by sampan bambooe boat. It takes time about 10 minutes. The fee entrance is very cheap Rp 10.000,- includes the boat. The problem, If you go there by bus you have to pay Rp 150.000,- for escort the bus. You can see the traditional house at Kampung Pulo in the temple area.

Overshadowed by the Islamic arrival
Jan 2018 • Family
Sadly, this small temple on a fantastic and picturesque location in the middle of a lake does not have any real information on the hindu history behind the piece of culture and the small memorabilia house only tells the story of the Islamic conversion of the island.

Good attempt in preserving ancient culture
Apr 2017 • Family
Sure, the temple is not that big. But it's a really good attempt to preserve the whole place; the village, the lake, and the temple itself (because we know it's hard to preserve something, yeah?). Guide was informative. We had to rent a small traditional boat to cross the lake and get to the temple spot--which is also another fun experience.

recalls history
Nov 2016 • Family
When I arrived, I parked in a yard large enough and many kiosks that provide souvenirs made of wood. Before heading to the temple, are required to buy a ticket to get into the area and only a few miniature temples and images of the discovery of the temple, if you want to see the temple you need to spend about IDR 80,000 per boat commute, or have to wait 20 passenger so we can pay just IDR 4000 each person. After arriving at the temple there is a small island with lakes that is not so wide, there are a few manners that we should not to do at the time was in the temple area and lots of souvenir stalls and custom homes in the vicinity. a lot of people make a pilgrimage to the various ancestral tombs that can be said about the residents. This place and the temple is good for remembering history and gain knowledge.

Little Hindu temple in the middle of the lake
Jul 2016 • Friends
Quite surprisingly it's very relaxing to visit this little temple. Temple in the middle of an island surrounded by lake, and you have to get into the island by bamboo rafting ...
Very nice view and surroundings ...

Small Temple with Nice View
Mar 2016 • Friends
Cangkuang Temple has a nice location. For visitor, you need to take a getek (small boat) to reach the destinations. You need to pay Rp 4K/person or you can pay Rp100K for one boat. It will take you only 5min to reach the temple. You must enjoy the view around the temple. Its surrounded by lake, clear sky, cool places and friendly people. You can also take a tour guide to explain about the temple.

Stop by if...
Nov 2015 • Friends
Not much Hindu temple in West Java to see. Candi Cangkuang is a small Hindu temple on a tiny island. To reach there, taking bamboo raft with capacity around 20 people max.
It is not so special compared to Hindu temples in Central Java and Bali. Stop by if you are within this area (fe.on way to Bandung or Jakarta). Sunset time is the right time for sunset lover.

The place is not that special, but worth a visit if you're in Garut. The entrance is Rp 5.000, but you have to pay another Rp 4.000 to use the raft if you want to see the temple.
