About the tour

Mendut and Pawon Temples are located in Mungkid District, Magelang Regency, Central Java, about 40 km to the northwest of Yogyakarta. Together with Borobudur Temple, these temples are located in a straight line from north-south. It is quite unique yet fascinating facts considering that these temples were built in 8th century. Nowadays, on Vesak Day, the Buddhist started their pilgrimage by gathering at Mendut temple then start their procession towards Borobudur Temple with a stop at Pawon Temple. Let's join this tour and learn about Buddhist wisdoms that were carved on the balusters of Mendut Temple. The tour will include five minutes car ride as we move from Mendut to Pawon Temple. Please kindly check my other tour of Borobudur with Heygo and complete your spiritual and virtual journeys with a visit to Borobudur Temple.

What a beautiful setting. My first “visit” to Indonesia and I just loved how green it is. Gagat was charming and recognised the fact that the time difference meant it was early morning for some of us. A gentle tour of serene temples with the odd, apparently suicidal motorcyclist thrown in! Many thanks.

Gaga is one of my favorite guides. I could look at Hindu and Buddhist temples with him all day! Each is a different work of art, and Gagat tells us so much about the history and customs of each location. Each temple offers different scenery and sometimes wild life. What every tour has in common is Gagat's patience, reverence for the temples and his sincere love for sharing his country's treasures with us. Thank you, Gagat!
