Best of Gedong Songo Temple Semarang - Once in a life time experience


This is a resort on the slope of mount Ungaran, about 900 meters above sea level. Gedong Songo Temple (nine buildings), a group of small 8th century Hindu Javanese temples, can be reached either by car or on horseback from the town. Built at about the same time as the temples of the Dieng complex, Gedong Songo is one of the most beautifully sited temple complexes in Central Java and the views alone are worth the trip. Gedung Songo ('Nine Buildings') belong to the earliest antiquities of Java, they follow up the temples on the Dieng Plateau directly, for what about time. They were also built high in the mountains in an area full with volcanic activity; and they were also from Hinduist origin.

It was a beautiful day for hiking the 3K walking and although you can hire a horse to climb the area to reach the 9th temple on the top location. We can assure you that the mountain scenery and the weather would spoil you during your visit.
