Candi Bima

2.5 1

A further 800 metres down the road from Candi Gatokaca away from Komplek Candi Arjuna and on the way to Kawah Sikidang is the solitary Candi Bima.

This temple sitting atop a hill is the largest in the Dieng area and shuns some of the design aspects of the other temples and therefore looks slightly different; the main difference, besides its impressive size, is its tiered roof. Human figures appear in the reliefs of the roof which are of some interest.

The setting of this temple isn't really that impressive and the temple itself is nothing to write home about, meaning that most visitors will spin around it in about five minutes before heading off down the road to Kawah Sikidang, which is a highlight on the plateau.
