... they feel nice to say almost poetic. This one was built in the 9th century as well but has not been restored to the same state as Borobudur, yet. Work is in progress. It is just concerned with Hinduism and the complex consists of temples dedicated to the Trimurti the creator Brahma, the Preserver Vishnu and the Destroyer, Shiva. The temples have a fairly small square base but are quite tall, the central temple is about 50m high. There were a number of other temples that were ...
