Indonesia: Prambanan Temple

Prambanan21One of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the island of Java, Indonesia is the Prambanan Temple Compounds which house a collection of Hindu temples, including the largest one in the country.

 In contrast to Borobudur, Prambanan doesn’t boast of eye-popping scenic views or ancient statues of Hindu gods which are probably why it is often overshadowed by its Buddhist counterpart. The bleak afternoon sky during our visit and the fact that we were up since 2 AM to catch the sunrise at Borobudur (my awesomest one yet) didn’t help much either. Luckily, we once again bumped into different school groups of friendly and eager teens who seemed all too excited to practice their English with us and that alone was enough to make the experience a memorable one.

From the closest international airport in Yogyakarta, it only takes about 20 minutes to get to Prambanan by cab. The entrance fee to the compounds will set foreigners back by 162,000 IDR and exactly half that price for registered students.
