Know More about this tour

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 Britains 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.
