Candi Sari sesuai dengan namanya berarti indah atau cantik, candi ini memiliki bentuk yang ramping. Mungkin karena keindahannya yang menarik perhatian maka ia dinamakan demikian.

Puncak atap candi dihiasi 9 stupa yang sama sebangun dan tersusun dalam 3 deret. Di bawah masing-masing stupa terdapat ruangan-ruangan bertingkat dua yang digunakan sebagai tempat tinggal, tempat bermeditasi dan mengajar.

Arca-arca bodhisatwa terpahat pada dinding ini dihias dengan amat indahnya. Biara Budha yang dibangun pada +/- abad 8 masehi ini terletak pada sisi kiri jalan raya Yogya-Solo. Masuk sekitar 500 meter ke arah utara. Bangunan dengan panjang 17,32 meter dan lebar 10 meter ini merupakan sebagian saja dari kumpulan candi yang hilang.

 

Sari temple is located in Bendan hamlet of Tirtamartani village, Kalasan, Sleman about 10 kilometers from Yogyakarta, and only around 3 kilometers from Kalasan temple. The temple is also named after the hamlet where it is situated.

It is estimated that the temple was built at the same time as Kalasan temple on the 8th century AD during the rule of King Panangkaran. The two temples indeed have many similarities either in its architecture or relief. That these temples are correlated is stated in Kalasan inscription (700 Saka/778 AD). The inscription mentions that the spiritual advisors of Syailendra dynasty suggested King Tejapurnama Panangkarana or Rakai Panangkaran to build a shrine and a monastery for Buddhist monks. Following the suggestion, the king built Kalasan temple to the worship of Dewi Tara Sari temple as a monastery for Buddhist monks. That Sari temple serves as a monastery is indicated in the temple’s structures, structural components, and interior. The bell-shaped stupa on top indicates that this is a Buddhist temple.

Sari temple was discovered in ruins in the early 20th century. The first restoration was conducted between 1929 and 1930. Kempers said that the first restoration was not satisfying, as it failed to restore the temple to its original form because parts of the temple could not be found. In addition, parts of the temple had crumbled when they were discovered.

Candi Sari terletak pada sisi kiri jalan raya Yogya-Solo. Masuk sekitar 500 meter ke arah utara. Sari berarti Cantik atau Indah.
