Review of Penataran Temple

Penataran Temple
Reviewed 9 April 2016

Penataran Tempel located 11 km north of Blitar. Consider as the biggest Hindu Temple in East Java. Whole temple complex is very well preserved (buried under Kelud volcano ash could be on of the reason). On the west side of the complex there is square wall depict Khrisnayana story. The temple is open everyday for public.

A well maintained historical temple complex, nice to see the lawn within the complex. Very hot during daytime, good to visit in the morning.

The first time I came here was during school trip. the last time I came here to see Purnama Seruling Panataran, the attraction during the full moon last November. There are some Hindu temples here such as Naga (dragon) temple and Angka Tahun temple. and here you can see lots of reliefs about Ramayana, Sri Tanjung, and Cerita Panji.
