Fodor's Expert Review Prambanan Temples

Semarang Religious Building/Site/Shrine Fodor's Choice

You can combine Borobudur sightseeing with a visit to this temple complex, a vestige of Java's Hindu past spread over a broad plain. Built just after Borobudur, this UNESCO World Heritage site contains 237 gray stone temples in the classical tall, pointed Hindu style, the largest rising 154 feet. The complex was reduced to ruins through centuries of neglect and earthquakes. Reconstruction efforts began in 1918, with the main shrine completed in 1953. The 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake led to the closure of some building interiors due to safety concerns, but what's visible, inside and out, remains extraordinarily impressive.
