Looks like dove but was called “Chicken Church”. Nice view from the top. Very calm & lots of greenery surrounding this place. Spend 30mins and claim your deep fry tapioca and a nice hot coffee and enjoy the view.

Located just about 10-15 minutes away from the Borobudur Temple, there is no harm to stop by here. It's a chicken-shaped church, but when I was here, this place was currently under renovation. Ticket costs IDR 15,000, free-snack included, which is fried cassava. So isolated...More

Odd, worth a contemplative wander. Interesting trip through little villages. Hefty uphill walk from car park. Seems to be jeep ferrying non-walkers up. Ticket price we were told included a light lunch. Basically 4 floors- that dove head view...it is great seeing across to Borobudur...More

If you're into quirky things, this is the place to go. A beautiful trek through villages to get there. View from the top is stunning.

An intersection of kitsch and spirituality that will move and amuse. Go, go, go. Fantastic anti-drug art inside. Go, go, go. One painting has a woman and man busy texting with a forlorn and lonely child sitting between them. What more could you want in...More

It is cheap to enter and quite far to get too! I wouldn't recommend going by motorbike. The top of the chicken is really small and they limit the number of people that can go up. It wasn't busy when we got there at 5ham...More
