There are so many temple in Indonesia, and the most famous are Borobudur temple and Prambanan temple. If Borobudur temple is buddish temple, this prambanan temple is hinduism temple. Biggest in Indonesia and one of good place in Yogyakarta.
Prambanan temple is located at West of Yogyakarta. The temple was found in ruined condition and was buried. Nobody know how this very big temple could be buried by hundreds years. But, in the villager near the temple source, the temple was burried by the lava from Mount Merapi, one of the most active mount in the world. So, there weren’t any people could find it.
There is a legend that Javanese people always tell about this temple. As the story tells, there was a man named Bandung Bondowoso who loved Roro Jonggrang. To refuse his love, Jonggrang asked Bondowoso to make her a temple with 1,000 statues only in one-night time. The request was nearly fulfilled when Jonggrang asked the villagers to pound rice and to set a fire in order to look like morning had broken. Feeling to be cheated, Bondowoso who only completed 999 statues cursed Jonggrang to be the thousandth statue. But today, the Indonesia country can be so proud because they have very interesting and very beautifull temple in the world. The Prambanan temple.
