Candi Pawon & Candi Mendut

We’ve visited the Candi Pawon and Candi Mendut during our stay in Borobudur.

Candi Mendut is located about 3km east from Borobudur and Candi Pawon is 1km from Borobudur.

Mendut, Borobudur and Pawon, all of which are Buddhist temples, are located in one straight line.

Let’s start our journey…

Candi Pawon, it looked great. It was from the Javanese temple architecture.
