Yogyakarta Driver ATOK and team will proudly to provide tour guide driver for you during you take trip to surakarta.


Solo driver guide. Trip to Surakarta (Solo City) need full day tour (from early morning until afternoon) because Yogyakarta - Solo takes 2 hours by car and Solo - temples takes 1.5 hours. I do recommend that you stay a night at Solo after Yogyakarta trip, so next day you can visit all destinations in Solo with relax - no rush hour to go back Yogyakarta. 

If you come from Singapore or Malaysia, there are flights singapore or malaysia to Solo Indonesia. Landed in the morning and take Solo Indonesia tour then you stay overnight in Solo. Second day you get travel to yogyakarta and around.

There is still much to be investigated about the relationship of this temple to temple in other countries, such as India affiliated Sangsekerta posts in Kamasutra book and the building of the Maya in Central America. Try also consider building Inca culture in Peru. Sukuh impossible when there is no relation with the culture of other countries. How is it possible in countries very distant, to create buildings and ornaments erostis almost the same as in Sukuh?

b. Ceto Temple
Cetho temple was a Hindu temple relics patterned end of Majapahit era (15th century). The first scientific report about him made ​​by Van de Vlies in 1842. A.J.
