Rise early and follow the temple trail as our Leisure Concierge guides you from the city centre to Candi Cetho, located on the remote western slopes of Mount Lawu. Perched 1,500 meters above sea level, this ancient temple was built in the 15th century during the reign of the Majapahit Kingdom. Its location provides an abundance of fresh air and gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains. According to locals, the word “cetho” means clarity in Javanese. According to historians, the temple is also synonymous with rebirth. Candi Cetho is still used as a place of worship for Hindus and the followers of the original Javanese ancestral religion of Kejawen.
