candi is very well kept. It's the 2nd most holy Hindu temple in Java island. Cravings are more sophisticated. There's no entrance fees no people are very friendly. Though not comparable in size to prambanan do bear in mind the age difference between the 2...More

We travelled easily from Blitar by motorcycle to the site of this temple at Penataran only about 20 to 30 minutes north. On the way in to the site we signed a guest register and paid a small donation. I don't think there is a...More

This is an out of the way, Lovely temple. Worth a trip. Now that a trip to Mt. Kelud is a dud, visit this temple anyway.

This is a beautiful and awesome place. You need some time to stroll around and pay attention to all the fascinating details. Don't go at noon or bring a sun cap or umbrella; it can be very hot and not much shade around.
