Gedung Songo Temples in Central Java

Written By: herbrunbridge - May• 23•10

There are nine small Hindu temples in the Gedung Songo (also known as Gedong Songo)complex, and they are worth a visit as part of a day trip from Jogjakarta, which could also encompass Borobudur Temple and the Locomotive Museum at Ambarawa. They were built in the 8th and 9th centuries, and have been somewhat restored. Although the architecture pales in comparison with Borobudur, the views on a clear day are stunning, with Gunung Merapi’s ever-present plume as a backdrop. 

Best views are generally in the morning, before the mists develop. Gedung Songo is located 5 km from Bandungan. Its parking lot is at GPS S07°12.611’  E110°20.528′
