Before we move to Borobudur, we spent sometimes to visit Prambanan temple, the most beautiful Hindu temple in the world.
It’s listed under UNESCO World heritage site. The temple is 17km from Yogjakarta.
It was amazing experience!
Built in the 10th century, this is the largest temple compound dedicated to Shiva in Indonesia. Rising above the centre of the last of these concentric squares are three temples decorated with reliefs illustrating the epic of the Ramayana, dedicated to the three great Hindu divinities (Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma) and three temples dedicated to the animals who serve them.

Let’s start our beautiful journey….
Our gratitude to our ancestors for leaving behind such a magnificent and beautiful temple.
Let’s do our best to preserve it, and give opportunities to our next generation to pay a visit.
“That nothing is static or fixed, that all is fleeting and impermanent, is the first mark of existence. It is the ordinary state of affairs. Everything is in process. Everything—every tree, every blade of grass, all the animals, insects, human beings, buildings, the animate and the inanimate—is always changing, moment to moment.”
