Candi Plaosan

Recommended
Candi Plaosan is a complex of temples 2km from Prambanan, and combines Hindu and Buddhist decorative elements. The sanctuary is thought to celebrate the union of a Buddhist princess, Sailendra, and a Hindu king, Sanjaya, the two dynasties that shared Java at the time (9C). To the north stands a pair of twin temples both containing three cells, in each of which two impressivebodhisattva flank pedestals formerly occupied by bronze Buddhas. Outside are delicate low reliefs ofdancers , and mighty guardians ( raksasa ) warding off the evil spirits.
