Temple Run: Rato Buku

We were able to go to Candi Rato Buku because of the package we got when we bought the Prambanan tickets. It is located on top of a hill, 3 km. south of Candi Pramnbanan. the drive going there was rocky but nice. It was a rough road surrounded by rice fields. It was not as stunning as Prambanan and Borobudur. Maybe that’s the reason why they include it in the package. Nonetheless, the location was nice. Not for our body though. It was the third and last temple we went to and we really felt beat up from all the walking and climbing.

Temple Run

No. It’s not about the game.

Today was Temple Day. We visited temples on our second day. I had my first experience to really watch the sunrise. It was nicer that I’ve seen it on top of the enormous Borobudur Temple. I call it the hidden temple as you cannot see it on the way there. I found on the internet that it is about a 15-minute walk from the parking area to the gate of the temple stairs.Image

I apologize for my lack of skills in photography. It was tiring climbing those [more or less] 100 steps. Yeah, I’m nerd that way. But it sure was a nice view from the top. 🙂 I have about more than 100 images on my camera with all the angles possible to my noob photography skills.

We have been raving about touching the stone/buddha inside the stupa and have our wish grated but I never got to try it as I was so busy taking pictures. This is my favorite picture.

Prambanan is another temple in Jogja. It is a Hindu temple. I was only able to take a very bad picture from afar. Tomorrow will be the day for us to visit and climb it which means more pictures to come. 🙂

Tonight was well spent with us watching the Javanese cultural dance, Ramayana Ballet. Expensive but definitely worth it.Image

More pictures in my facebook account https://www.facebook.com/cheeneestar. This one is my fave from the show…a picture with the two main characters. Yeah! I learned after the show that they won the Gold among other countries in the cultural dance competition by  the Pacific Asia Travel Association.
