In my short business trip, I tried hard to arrange my time to visit this temple. I read before about it and curious. In short I must say that this temple is very unique and made me want to come back again next time. Unique because it were made from red bricks. Not like Javanesee temple or other temple in... More

The place was quite clean and you could find souvenir shop and food stall there. Oh ya, the local provide bicycle for rent at very reasonable price (IDR 10.000 or... More

This type of structure is rather common in Vietnam at the Champa sites of central Vietnam. Old temples that have been destroyed and are being rebuilt with red bricks and some of the old pieces. My largest problem with this is, I can't be sure if the temples that now stand are a true reproduction of what was there. The... More

The Muarojambi Temple Complex was dated to 7A.D. and holds an important part of the Malay history. It is unique since the temples were built using bricks rather than volcanic rocks like most temples found in Indonesia. To reach the location is relatively easy from the Jambi city, we could rent a car from hotel and take us to the... More

This is an enormous archeological site, filled with semi-excavated temples. The historical importance can't be over emphasized and it is really very interesting to see. I recommend going from Jambi City by boat and returning by car as our group did. This is not to be missed.
