As the largest Hindu temple in Southeast Asia, the beautiful and graceful temple of Prambanan is a magnificent spectacle and an icon of Indonesia’s cultural heritage. Located not far from the Buddhist Borobudur temple, the proximity of the two temples tells us that on Java, Buddhism and Hinduism lived peacefully next to one another.
The temples at Prambanan were built in the 9th century. The biggest temple is dedicated to Shiva – the Destroyer, and the two smaller ones which sit on its right and left are dedicated to Brahma -¬ the Creator and Wisnhu – the Sustainer. The tallest temple of Prambanan is a staggering 47 meters high. Its peak visible from far away and rises high above the ruins of the other temples. The grandeur, complexity, and integrated architectural concept of Prambanan make this a truly amazing structure. As a unique cultural and architectural marvel, Prambanan was declared a World Heritage site in 1991 by UNESCO.
