    What to Expect
    The Prambanan Temple Complex was build in the 9th-century and is located in Central Java around 17 kilometres from Yogyakarta and was dedicated to the Trimurti, the expression of God as the Creator (Brahma), the Preserver (Vishnu) and the Destroyer (Shiva) and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest Hindu temple site in Indonesia and one of the largest in Southeast Asia.

    In 1811 during Britain’s short-lived occupation of the Dutch East Indies, Colin Mackenzie, a surveyor in the service of Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, came upon the temples by chance. Although Sir Thomas subsequently commissioned a full survey of the ruins, they remained neglected for decades. Dutch residents carried off sculptures as garden ornaments and native villagers used the foundation stones for construction material.

    Around 7:30am, you will be picked Up at your centrally located hotel in Yogyakarta city and drive to Prambanan village. The first step is to enter the Prambanan Temple Complex. You will visit the Trimurti temples dedicated to Shiva, Visnu, and Brahma. Continue to visit the Vahana temples dedicated to the vahana of each gods; Nandi, Garuda, and Hamsa.

    The last step is to visit the Patok temples: four small shrines located on 4 corners of inner zone and the Pervara temples.

    Around 11:30am, your guide will send you back to your hotel in Yogyakarta.

    Learning the history of the Temple and how it was built was just amazing. I do recommend this site it is a must to see for tourists and it’s for the books.
