Prambanan Temple

tanya .
A little ahead of Yogyakarta lies a temple complex dedicated to the Trimurti, one which serves as a magnificent reminder of the country's Hindu past. A walk in the dusty, half renovated grounds (with plenty of photo ops, we promise) is enough to put you in touch with your quieter, spiritual side. Awed (and hungry), we next headed to a more commericalised seating with the temple as the background; any unsuspecting Indian traveller, familiar with the light and sound shows growing up, will only consider it that. Until the Ramayana ballet unfolds in all its theatrical glory.
