Sambisari expected to be built between the years 812-838 AD, during the reign of Rakai possibility Garung. The temple complex consists of 1 main temple and 3 accompanying temple. There are two fences surrounding the temple complex, the fence has been perfectly restored, while the other fence revealed only a little to the east of the temple. Still as a barrier, there are 8 pieces phallus stakes are scattered in every direction of the wind.

Main temple building is unique because it does not have a pedestal like other temples in Java. Foot of the temple also functions as a base so that parallel to the ground. The foot of the temple is left plain, without reliefs or decorations. Various ornaments are generally in the form of new simbar found at the top of the temple of the body to the outside. The ornaments glance like batik motifs.

Climbing the stairs of the temple entrance, you can find an ornament of a lion that is in the mouth of makara (the magical animal in Hindu mythology) gaping. Figure makara in Sambisari and is an evolution of the makara form in India which can be a blend of an elephant with a fish or a crocodile with a curved tail.

1 meter wide hallway will be found after passing through the last steps of the main temple entrance. Around it, you will find three niches, each of which contains a statue. On the north side, there is a statue of Goddess Durga (the wife of Lord Shiva) with eight hands, each holding a weapon. While on the east side there is a statue of Ganesha (son of Goddess Durga). On the south side, there Agastya with aksamala (prayer beads) are worn around the neck.

Sambisari Temple Tourism

Entering the main chamber of the temple, can be seen phallus and yoni is large enough, approximately 1.5 meters. Its presence indicates that the temple was built as a place of worship of Lord Shiva. Phallus and yoni in the chamber of the temple is also used to make holy water. Typically, the water poured on the phallus and allowed to flow past the small ditch on the yoni, and then collected in a container.

Exit from the main temple and headed west, you can see all three ancillary temples (companion) are facing the opposite direction. There are allegations that these ancillary temples intentionally built without a roof because when excavation is not found rocks the roof. Section in the middle of the ancillary temples have a square pedestal decorated with dragons and padmasana (lotus) spherical convex on it. Possibility, Padmasana and pedestal used as a statue or offerings.

When you have been enjoying the beauty of the temple, you can go to the information space. Some photos depicting paddy environment Karyowinangun before excavated and the initial condition of the temple when it was discovered to be found. There are also photographs of the excavation and reconstruction of the temple that lasted for tens of years, including photos of other objects found during the excavation, in the form of a bronze statue which is now kept in the Archaeological Heritage Preservation Hall.

Stepping into the eastern part of the palace, you will see two caves, big pond measuring 20 meters x 50 meters and a Buddhist stupa looks calm. Two caves were formed from sedimentary rock called pumice breccia. Caves that are more on so-called Cave of Lanang while under the so-called Cave Wadon.

It can be seen with the Linga and Yoni, Ganesha statues, and gold plate that reads "Om namah swaha Rudra yes" as a form of worship to the god Rudra is another name of Lord Shiva. The existence of Hindu elements that prove the existence of religious tolerance that is reflected in architectural works. Indeed, when it Panangkaran who are Buddhists live side by side with the followers of Hinduism.

Fortunately available wood handle as the support body. However, caution is required because of the steep path. After a steep and slippery rocks, the remaining one more challenge, we still have to pass through the reef inhabited by thousands of colored transparent baby crabs measuring about 5 mm.

One of them that has not been a debate is Ijo Temple, a temple located at the height of the other temples in Yogyakarta.

Ijo Temple was built around the 9th century, on a hill known as the Green Hill Ijo dunes which height is 410 m above sea level. Because of its height, it is not only the temple but also can enjoy the natural scenery below such as terraces of agriculture land with steep slopes.

Various forms of art found from the entrance to the building is classified as a Hindu temple. Just above the entrance there is a motive when makara with double heads and some of its attributes. Motif and attributes which can also be found in Buddhist temples show that such temples are acculturation forms of Hindu and Buddhist culture. Some temples have a motive when similar makara among others Ngawen, Plaosan and Sari.

Unlike the statue in Prambanan Temple, natural style of the statues in Ijo Temple do not lead to eroticism.

Towards building ancillary temples on the terrace to the 11th, there is a place like a bath of fire sacrifice (homa). Right at the top of the back wall there are air holes or vents in the form of a parallelogram and a triangle. The existence of a fire sacrifice reflects the Hindu community that worships Brahma.

This scenery because Thousand Mountains where the temple stands is the border of the eastern part of the airport.

Every detail of the temple presents meaningful thing and invites the audience to reflect that the trip will not just be fun.
