What You'll Experience

See the ruins of Ratu Boko Palace, an ancient palace from the 9th century
Watch the incredible sunset view at Ratu Boko Palace, located 195 meters above sea level
Admire the influence of Buddhist and Hindu architecture on the structure
See Prambanan Temple and Mount Merapi as a backdrop for the temple view

Standing on a hill at an altitude of about 195 meters above sea level, Ratu Boko is not a temple. Completed around the 9th century, this archaeological site was once a magnificent palace, and legend has it that Ratu Boko was the palace of Lara Jonggrang's father.

While construction first began under the Buddhist Syailendra dynasty, Hindu Mataram kings soon took over, making Ratu Boko Palace a blend of Buddhist and Hindu architectural influences. From here, you can see the nearby Prambanan Temple standing against Mount Merapi in the background, which is definitely worth a visit if you're around the area!
