  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    Take a trip to the Hindu temple of Prambanan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the major tourist attractions of Indonesia. It is the largest Hindu temple in the country built by the Sanjaya Dynasty. Marvel at its tall, pointed architecture, typical of Hindu temples.

    As you explore further, you will see 224 temples in the complex, of which the three main temples are the Brahma Temple, Vishnu Temple and the 47- metre high Shiva Temple. The temple boasts of a wealth of sculptures - keep an eye out for sculptures of the Ramayana epic on an inner wall! Your Javanese excursion will truly be a time to remember.

    Itinerary

    You will be picked up in an air conditioned coach from your hotel in Yogyakarta and taken on a private guided tour of the Prambanan Temple. The temple is situated in central Java, approximately 18 kilometres east of Yogyakarta.

    It is a beautiful 9th century Hindu temple built by the Sanjaya Dynasty. It is also known as Roro Jonggrang, or the Slender Virgin Temple, and has an open theatre where the popular Ramayana ballet is performed annually from May to October during the full moon. Visit the Archeological Museum in the premises to learn about the history of Prambanan and the surrounding temples.

    You will also visit the nearby Kalasan, Sewu, and Plaosan Temples.

    You will be transferred back to your hotel in Yogyakarta.
