Photo Friday: Prambanan Plain (Indonesia)

Asia, International Travel, Photography

Prambanan Plain is home to an incredible array of temples and palaces from the 8th and 9th centuries. The centerpieces of the complex are the three temples that occupy the central courtyard, dedicated to the Hindu gods of Vishnu, Brahma and Shiva. It is believed that the site was abandoned some 300 years ago, when earthquakes reduced many of the structures to rubble. Only 18 of the original 240 temples have been rebuilt.
