Dalam penelitian-penelitian terdahulu sudah membahas tentang hal serupa. Namun, terdapat perbedaan yang ditemukan yaitu tentang nilai-nilai moral yang diperoleh dari makna dan cerita di balik Relief yang ada di Candi Sojiwan. Penelitian ini menggunakan metode kualitatif. Adapun objek dalam penelitian ini adalah Candi Sojiwan itu sendiri. Terdapat tiga teknik pengumpulan data yang digunakan dalam penelitian ini, yaitu observasi, wawancara, dan dokumentasi. Data yang diperoleh kemudian dianalisis menggunakan desain penelitian yang disebut dengan metode kualitatif flow. Metode penelitian yang digunakan ini memiliki tiga tahap, yaitu mengumpulkan data, mengurang data, menampilkan data, dan menyimpulkan atau memvalidasi. Hasil penelitian ini menunjukkan bahwa: (1) terdapat empat belas bentuk Relief yang ada di Candi Sojiwan dan (2) masing-masing Relief memiliki nilai moral yang terkandung dalam cerita dari masing-masing Relief. Semua Relief tersebut menyampaikan nilai-nilai moral, yaitu kecerdikan, kesederhanaan, toleransi, ketulusan, disiplin, ketabahan, kasih sayang, kehati-hatian, mawas diri, solidaritas, dan persatuan.
