Surakarta Tour Package

Surakarta Tour Package Excellent Jogja Driver +62 819 1553 4286 Solo (international name : Surakarta) has several interested place to visit. The most popular destination in Solo are : Sukuh Temple, Ceto Temple, Waterfall Cemoro Sewu, Mangkunegaran Palace, Kraton Solo (Solo Palace). Trip to Solo 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.  

a. Sukuh Temple

An unique temple explain human fertility with the art lover. When someone says a taboo, it really naif that says so. Besides, this temple is same popular in the art of lovemaking as a portrait of what is written in the book of Kamasutra. In this area also there is a beautiful stone relief about economic activity at that time : iron home industry.

Sukuh Tample


Sukuh built around the end of the glory days of Majapahit. Majapahit royal administrative center in the village Trowulan able to talk to this Sukuh. Borobudur temple, the Temple of Queen Boko, the kingdom of Demak was so from the glory of Majapahit. Borobudur temple when a religious ceremony, and temple Brahu was temple fpr cremation ash storage Hindus-Buddhists, but Sukuh we can say temple of fertility and temple art of lovemaking.


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?
