Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Prambanan Temple is actually comprised of the remains of 244 temples.
An impressive architectural paragon of carved staircases and masonry, the highlight of Prambanan rises above its center; three massive temples decorated with reliefs that tell the epic tale of Ramayana. This portion of the compound is dedicated to Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, the three great divinities of the Hindu religion.
With eight minor and eight major temples flanking this extravagant display, the park is also peppered with a number of lesser structures that are in various aging. Visitors can expect exquisitely detailed walls, masterful stone carvings, and enough sightseeing to keep them busy for an entire day.Places nearby:
