Selogriyo Temple is the one of ancient world historical temples located in Magelang , Central Java. It is a very well preserved 5 th century Hindu Temple and an extremely unique temple. Located exactly in one on the most beautiful and pictureseque valley in Indonesia near Kembang Kuning Village, Windusari, Magelang. It is located +/- 15 km distance from Magelang city and 35 km distance from Borobudur Temple. The local travel agents in Borobudur regulary bring tourists to visit to Selogriyo Temple. They all are extremely impressed especially with the unique natural environmental surroundings and beautiful gentle uphill walk to the temple.
The people living in the surrounding area continue daily to use the mahogany timber as charcoal and for for building materials. As this condition continues to happen and no one is concerned about this issue very soon it will destroy the remaining forest which will result in a very bad impact for water conservation and long term natural sustainability in the area. The main hill overlooking the Temple has been totally deforestated resulting in regular landslips.It is only a matter of time before one of these landslides destroyes the temple forever.
Some members of the local community are very concerned about the environmental damage and long term effects on the local enviroment. A major effort has been led by Mr. Suradi from Balesari village, Kembang Kuning who has suggested for rearborisation and replanting trees around Selogriyo Temple,Kembang Kuning Village, Balesari and Ngepanrejo Village in Bandongan. The total area is +/- 20 – 25 sq km.
