Prambanan Temple: Virtual Tour

Prambanan Temple / Yogyakarta

Dating back to 9th-century Java, Indonesia’s Prambanan temple complex holds the country’s largest temple dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, “the auspicious one.” Intricate and striking, the complex consists of an almost unthinkable 240 temples, and the architecture of the main shrine represents the Hindu vision of hierarchy—a pyramidal structure that ascends to a towering holy spire. This amazing relic can be explored, free of crowds, courtesy of Google’s virtual tour. —E.C.
