Cetho Temple

Built in the 15th century, the Cetho Temple is also located high on the western slope of Mount Lawu, above the Sukuh Temple. The journey to Cetho is a trip for the real adventurer, along a winding road trough tea gardens and forest, up the Temple’s fourteen terraces in to the clouds. The Temple’s allure lies in its aura of mystery. Architecturally reminiscent of the ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures of Central America, the Cetho Temple is similar to the Sukuh Temple and is unlike other temples in Central Java. It provides an unforgettable experience for the more during traveller.
