Chicken Temple (Bukit Rhema) is a modern temple, and perhaps the most ambiguous and unusual in all of Indonesia. Initially, it was conceived not as a tourist destination, but as a temple of all religions, and its shape was also chosen very strange – in the form of a dove. But in fact, he looks more like a chicken, which is why he was so nicknamed by the people. Over time, due to its unusual nature, it has become a popular tourist destination visited from Yogyakarta. The temple even has its own website - https://bukitrhema.com/.
The temple consists of seven floors, and you can climb them to the very top. It offers panoramic views. Inside the walls are very colorfully painted, but not all the finishing work has been completed yet.

🚶 How to get there: located 60 kilometers from Yogyakarta (temple on the map), it is most convenient to visit it together with the temple Borobudur by the route (it is located a little further than Borobudur), a separate trip may not be worth it. You can get there by rented transport or buses. Go the same way as to Borobudur, and then a couple more kilometers through the village. The last half kilometer of the way will have to go steeply uphill, be careful. From the parking lot it is still about 300 meters on foot.
