What travellers are saying
- Our morning was well spent at this museum. The factory is, however, unfortunately closed. Then again, for only 5000 rupiah per person we got a personal tour through the old factory and some other buildings. Very interesting and amazing to see all those big machines. The museum itself isn't much special. There is also a restaurant where you can buy both food and drinks.Written 19 June 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The location around 45 minutes from Solo. There was an entrance fee Rp 6000 in weekday. The water was very clear coming from natural spring and always flowing. Taking picture and video under the water was amazing. There were some stalls selling food, drinks, pants, towels and soaps.Written 13 September 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

There are a lot of floating reataurant.
Recommend the Ilham restaurant. Served delicious fresh cut vegetables with shredded young coconut called terancam.
Best time come to this place is around 4 pm.
You may enjoy the sunset by the lake while having your meals.
Better visit during rainy season instead of dry season/summer.

- If you happen to be in Yogyakarta and wonder what other temples to visit besides the crowd and famous Prambanan, I'd recommend you to visit Sojiwan Temple. Other than the temple itself, it has nice park to open your picnic basket and a museum of temple's architecture.
The temple is kinda hidden but still easy to find. Just use Google Maps or Waze, or ask people around. You can park your bike in a house across the temple and pay 2K IDR. To go to the temple itself is free.Written 20 August 2017
- This tomb complex is set amidst beautiful forested hills in a remote corner of a Klaten Regency, about 30kms from downtown Yogyakarta. That mightn’t seem far in theory but if you come out here you’re in a different world. The tomb is set in a small Javanese village surrounded by emerald rice paddies.
The tomb complex is an active pilgrimage site for Indonesian Muslims, with a steady flow of batik-clad locals making their way up to the peak. Having made the climb, you’re rewarded with a small timber mosque from 1480 and a series of courtyards filled with ancient tombs and separated by gorgeous stone gateways which more like those in a Balinese pura than a modern mosque. The architecture is beautiful and the atmosphere is serene.
For someone wanting to see a different side of Javanese history, this will appeal.Written 16 January 2019
- Candi Merak (Peacock Temple) is one of Klaten regency’s hidden gems. For a long time it was in ruins so no one cared about it. However, it has been restored since 2011 and it is now a beautiful and majestic addition to the area’s collection of ancient sites.
Of particular note here are the statues, the statues of Ganesha and Durga being particularly impressive. You can find them in outer niches on the outer walls. The Durga statue is headless but her body is powerfully depicted. The staircase is also beautifully ornamented. The temple dates to the 9th century and belongs to the Hindu faith.Written 29 April 2019
- In a regency famed for its magnificent Hindu shrines, Gua Maria (The Grotto of Maria) is something different. It’s an outdoor complex on a lovely wooded hill which has various statues and reliefs about the life and trials of Jesus. The highlight is the cave of Maria which is set at the end of a leafy and attractive courtyard. It attracts a trickle of Christian pilgrims from around Central Java. They light candles and burn them before the cave. There’s no entrance charge but donation boxes are a feature of the site.Written 28 January 2019
- We were here for underwater photos, it is a lot fun. The entrance is cheap, only idr 12k. During the weekend it is a bit crowded but still enjoyable. For underwater photos, there are some scenes to take. We try "underwater watching tv pose". And the result is not bad. Recommend to those who want to have underwater pics without have to dive in the dangerous ocean :)Written 28 August 2018
