Candi Sambisari

Interesting
Discovered by a peasant in 1966, buried beneath a 6m-thick layer of volcanic ash, Candi Sambisari was only excavated in 1996. It is probably one of the last Shaivite sanctuaries built by the Sanjayas (10C). It is thought that the pillars of the terrace bore a broad wooden roof. The temple is in a remarkably well-preserved state and still has its original linga, as well as elegant statues of Durga, Ganesha and Angsa decorating the niches of the upper gallery.
