Prambanan Temple - The Most Beautiful & Graceful Hindu Temple In Indonesia

Prambanan is a magnificent spectacle and an icon of Indonesia’s cultural heritage. The temples at Prambanan were built in the 9th century and is known locally as Roro Jonggrang, coming from the legend of the ‘slender virgin’.

After hundreds of years of neglect, the Prambanan temple was rediscovered by CA Lons, a Dutchman, in 1733. Since then, this temple has been revitalized and today is widely regarded as the most beautiful and graceful Hindu temple in Indonesia. The grandeur, complexity, and integrated architectural concept of Prambanan makes this a truly amazing structure. As a unique cultural and architectural marvel, Prambanan was declared a World Heritage site in 1991 by UNESCO.


Kompleks candi Prambanan terletak lebih kurang 17 kilometer timur laut Jogjakarta. Candi Prambanan ini merupakan candi Hindu terbesar di Indonesia dan menjadi salah satu candi terindah di Asia Tenggara. Candi Prambanan memiliki 3 candi utama di halaman utama, iaitu Candi Wisnu, Brahma, dan Siwa. Ketiga-tiga candi tersebut adalah lambang Trimurti dalam kepercayaan Hindu dan menghadap ke timur. Setiap candi utama memiliki satu candi pendamping yang menghadap ke barat, iaitu Nandini untuk Siwa, Angsa untuk Brahma, dan Garuda untuk Wisnu. Selain itu, terdapat 2 candi apit, 4 candi kelir, dan 4 candi sudut. Sementara, halaman kedua memiliki 224 candi.
