Description

Explore the area around Prambanan as you find some of the finest examples of Hindu and Buddhist architecture in the whole country. Among others, visit the UNESCO-listed Prambanan Temple complex itself before watching a breathtaking dance routine that tells one of the grandest Hindu tales.

Begin at a temple that is lesser-known than others, the 8th century Buddhist offering of Candi Kalasan, interesting as it is believed to be a prototype from the majestic Prambanan Temple that you come to next. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a series of striking temples built in the 9th century to honour the Hindu Holy Trinity; Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

See the fusion of Buddhist and Hindu influences at further sites, Candi Plaosan and Candi Sewu, before ascending to a plateau and Ratu Boko – a former spiritual retreat. With views over the area this is a prime position from which to watch the sunset.

Back at the Prambanan complex, tuck into a dinner comprising a typical Javanese buffet and wait for the entertainment to begin. With the vast temple atmospherically illuminated behind, watch as over 200 dancers tell the epic story of King Rama. The sight of them actually mirroring the engravings on the temple walls behind to the percussive beats of traditional gamelan music is a truly awe-inspiring display.
