Prambanan is the one that got away on our recent trip to Yogyakarta. Although we planned to visit this temple during the day, by day 3 we decided to skip it. We were exhausted. Are we really that old? (Don’t answer that! :p) Oh Yogyakarta, how we heart you! You always give reason to come back again. In the mean time, our friend Rahmat, gave us this picture of one of the reliefs on the Prambanan Temple. 

If anyone has ever visited the Angkor Wat in Cambodia, you’d see some similarity in with the Prambanan Temple, including the reliefs. Although the king of Cambodia was a Buddhist, it is said that at the time it was created, the design was based on Hindu temples. The temple was made as a dedication of Wishnu, a Hindu God, and Buddha was believed to be a form of Wishnu. Maybe, and just maybe, Prambanan was one of his inspiration? *smug*

Mudah-mudahan lain kali bisa liburan… Read more »
