Great and impressive Hindu temples. A must for travelers on Yogyakarta. The foreigner prices (almost 8x the price for locals) are a rip-off, but the temples are majestic and one canb almost feel the vibrations of the old Hindu gods. Its worthwile to read the...More

This place reminds me of temple complex in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Though this is the mini version and quieter. I reached this place in 1 hour ride East of Yogyakarta, paid 40k IDR entrance tickets (local price) to Prambanan and nearby temples (including Sewu, less...More

During the day time its really hot and better to visit early in the morning or late afternoon. There are few other temples around and you can use the small train which travel frequently around this place.

Every time I've visited Prambanan in the last 25+ years I say "wow". It's amazing that this massive stone structure of this mainly Hindu temple (chedi) complex were carved so delicately in the 9th century. Note that you do have to wend your way through...More

This review will not be about the temple complex (excellent), but I would like to share how to get to the temple, and more important how to get back to your hotel in Yogyakarta. You cannot get a metered taxi to the place, so you...More

I would recommended to hire a driver for the day. But many tourist rented scooter to move around as it is much cheaper. Just be careful as traffic is rather busy and the roads are quite narrow
