About the tour

According to the information gathered from an encrypted stone, this temple was built by a Buddhist Princess who married a Hindu Prince and later became the King of Mataram Hindu. As a symbol of their eternal love, the main temples consist of a twin temple and surrounded by 174 smaller temples - that brought prosperity and harmony among the people of Mataram Hindu Kingdom. Join me as I take you exploring this beautiful temple with a mixed of Buddhist-Hindu backgrounds.

Meet your local guide

He will be more than happy to share some secrets of the places of interest one might never hear before, making your trip as interesting as possible. Having studied law and great attention to the current issues, he enjoys discussion with various topics over coffee in the afternoon, while also having a great passion in trains and planes.

I hadn't done my homework on this tour, but so glad I joined. Gagat is a welcoming guide and shared his knowledge of this Hindu/Bhuddist temple. He explained about the reconstructions well and also explained about the covid restrictions preventing us from entering the temples. this didn't detract from the enjoyment of the tour.

This was my first contact with Indonesia. Unfortunately for Germany most of the tours are too early in the morning or in the Middle of the night. However the Tour to Plaosan Temple this morning (Germany 8:30) gave me a first impression of the structure of temples in Indonesia. It is still a giant 3D Jigsaw. And Gagat showed us a lot of details If the beautiful carvings. Thank you for all your explanations and the great postcard opportunities. Thank you for showing us your culture. I am looking forward to further visits like Brambanan.
