INFO: World Heritage Site

Prambanan was built around the year 850, under either Rakai Pikatan, a king of Mataram, or under Balit Maha Sambu during the Sanjaya Dynasty. The main temples collapsed during a earthquake in the 16th century and the huge complex lie largely forgotten in the jungle.

In 1811, a British surveyor discovered the ruins of Prambanan by pure chance. Proper restoration began only in 1930 and still continues today.

The plant is one of the largest Hindu temples in Southeast Asia. It was recognized in 1991 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. For those who travel on the island of Java, this attraction is a must to visit.

Especially as Yogyakarta offers many other tour opportunities and attractions inside and outside the city, as well as a huge number of very comfortable hotels.
