Actually this is not a church, it's a house of prayer whatever your religion/trust. Its shape is not a chicken but a pigeon with the crown. The aim of this place build is for everyone who need to pray with the quiet atmosphere. This is...More

This is by far the oddest church I've visited! I took the jeep to the top and I'm pleased that I did as the road is very steep. Lovely views across the valley.

When visiting Borobodur you can easily take a stop at chicken church but it is not a must do. The church is kind of weird and we paid 30k per paxentrance fee and 5k per scooter for parking. You get a little local snack with...More

This building, originally constructed in the form of a dove, has been locally coined geraja Ayan (chicken church), due to its uncanny resemblance to a chicken. Located about 5km from Borobudur temple, this poultry monument is definitely worth a visit as a good side note...More

Amazing view from the top. You can see "Borobudur" temple. Visited during almost sunset time, the view is really awesome. Staff are very friendly.

The building is unique but not much you can see here. Entrance fee not mistaken is IDR15K with free 1 plate of fried crisps tapioca with 2 tickets. Love the ambience of the cafe, nice coffee but limited choice of food.

I thought this was a fun place to visit. I have never seen a structure like this. It was peaceful on the inside, and one could climb to the top (the chicken crest) and see Mt Merapi.
