If java island has borobudur temples, jambi province has muaro jambi temples. A wide area of budhis ancient heritages. There are about 80 to 90 temples around the area. But only 9 temples have been restored.. So still most of the temples are unrestored.. In...More

We enjoyed strolling around the complex. It is unusual in Indonesia to be able to walk without lots of traffic. You can rent bikes but the distances are not that great. Good atmosphere. We had delicious banana fritters at small cafe just before the Candi...More

Fascinating site. Tranquil and thought-provoking. It's like you can feel the collective stories of countless individuals now lost to history. The restored temples are regal, but what isn't there is even more striking than what is. I found myself oddly emotional standing on top of...More

hi there.. I guarantee that the temple is a safe place to visit, not too far from Jambi (around 40 minutes) with a very smooth road.
