Prambanan

Prambanan is the largest Hindu temple complex in Indonesia. It was built in the ninth century and the three main temple structures (called trimurti temples) are dedicated to the Gods Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva with statues nestled in each one. I did not have nearly enough time to explore the Prambanan Temple.  After Borobudur we arrived at the Prambanan Archaeological Park around lunch time with an hour and a half, but I was starving (as always).  I dashed to the complex restaurant for a dish of nasi goreng (a famous Indonesian rice dish with a fried egg) and then started my exploration at the far end of the park, where the Sewu Temple is located.  Two additional temples are located in the archaeological park, Bubrah und Lumbung temples, both of which are in sad states of rubble and because of time, I was not able to visit either.
