    Nature and gardens

  • 3 Tangkuban Perahu Volcano Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    RI - Bandung

    Although it hasn't erupted since 1969, the low-lying Tangkuban Perahu ("Capsized Boat") volcano is active. The smoke, bubbling pools and sulphur fumes give the impression of having reached the ends of the earth, even though the road leading..

    Nature and gardens

    RI - Ciwidey

    Clinging to the slope of a superb gorge whose sides have been sculpted into paddy fields, Ciwidey ( 25km south of Bandung) is famous for its blacksmiths. From here the road disappears into the forest and 10km on a road to the left leads up to Kawah P..

  • 6 Mount Galunggung Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    RI - Cisayong

    Despite its placid appearance, the Galunggang (2 201m) has a fiery temper. From time to time the volcano likes to shake up the peaceful torpor of the surrounding countryside. Even though the eruption of 1982 was not as violent as that of 1822 (4 000 ..

    Nature and gardens

    Jalan Kidang Pananjung RI - Pangandaran

    Nature and gardens

  • 12 Candi Bima Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RI - Dieng

  • 13 Gedong Songo Site Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RI - Bandungan

    Approximately 110km of spectacular roads with stunning views over the surrounding volcanoes separate the Dieng Plateau from the Gedong Songo site. The omnipresent volcanoes (Sumbing, Sundoro, Merbabu and Lawu) loom on the horizon, around temples risi..

  • 14 Candi Mendut Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RI - Magelang

    Built in 800 by King Indra, Candi Mendut can be recognised by its cubic shape (its roof, most probably stupa-shaped, was never completed). The stairs and external walls are decorated with low reliefs and bodhisattva. But the main interest of the temp..

  • 15 Candi Brahma and Candi Visnu Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RI - Prambanan

  • 16 Candi Plaosan Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RI - Prambanan

    Candi Plaosan is a complex of temples 2km from Prambanan, and combines Hindu and Buddhist decorative elements. The sanctuary is thought to celebrate the union of a Buddhist princess, Sailendra, and a Hindu king, Sanjaya, the two dynasties that shared..

  • 17 Candi Sari Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RI - Kalasan

    Although dating from the same period as Candi Kalasan, Candi Sari has a radically different style. This handsome building with three parts, which stands on a high base and is topped with stupas, is more reminiscent of Candi Plaosan. Like the latter, ..

  • 18 Mount Lawu Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    RI - Solo

    To the east of Solo stands Lawu Volcano, with its dark green velvety-looking slopes, on which tea plantations grow alongside paddy fields and forests. Two little known Hindu temples, Candi Sukuh and Candi Ceto, are hidden in this setting of untamed b..

  • 19 Candi Sukuh Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RI - Solo

    One of the most mysterious and fascinating of Java's temples, Candi Sukuh (15C) dominates the Solo plain from 900m above sea level. The remarkable iconography of its reliefs and statues has boggled specialists as it does not correspond to the norms o..

  • 20 Candi Ceto Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RI - Solo

    On the slopes of Lawu Volcano, 1 200m above sea level, Candi Ceto stands like a mirage rising out of the mist and greenery. It is a contemporary of Candi Sukuh (c 1468-1475) and devoted to the same cult. However, its seven terraces are reminiscent of..
