After the decline of Buddhism and the shift of power to East Java, the monument was abandoned soon after its completion. For centuries the complex laid forgotten, buried under layers of volcanic ash. Climb up to the top and enjoy a wonderful view on the Menoreh Mountains. Enough time is given to stroll around the complex and to discover its beauty. Afterwards we continue to visit the nearby located temples such as Pawon Temple and Mendut Temple, before exploring the village of “Candi Rejo.” Travelling through the village by “Andong” (horse drawn carriage), you will gain an insight into the local customs and traditions, art and handicrafts, traditional health drinks and the agricultural system of intercropping.
