The next stop in my itinerary was Sari Temple, which is not very far from the main road. It is a KM before the Permbanan temple. It is a walking distance in fact from the main road. The temple is surrounded by village houses and you realize you are in front of the temple only when the driver tells you that this is the temple. This temple looked slightly older then Sambisari temple, indicating that probably it was constructed earlier. The outside wall has some reliefs on all the four sides and theyt are in pretty good shape. I have a photo of one of the relief work. The steps to climb to the temple is not done properly and they are very steep. You need to be careful while climbing. Inside the temple are three chambrs but no statue or reliefs. Probably it would have been the resting place for priests. Not very clear whether this was a buddhist temple or a Hindu Temple. There are no windows in the chambers, just a small hole on the wall to allow the light to come in. It was cool inside, although the outside was warm.
I paid IDR 2 K as entry fee.

Address: On the LHS on the Jogja-Solo Highway
Directions: The direction is well marked on the Jogja-Solo Highway. Keep on a lookout for Candi Sari sign board.
