Yogykarta – Prambanan

DSC_4817

Yogyakarta is probably better known for the ancient temples or candis found in the region. Since I am at that word, I would share that I made quite a little boo-boo while in conversation with one of the hotel staff: I had pronounced candi as how an African might say “candy” only to be corrected subtly that it should be pronounced chan-di. So don’t anyhow-ly pronounce, yah?

After the accidental adventure at Mount Merapi, we opted for the more common attractions that draw tourists to Yogyakarta. First of which we visited is Prambanan, a Hindu temple built in the 9th century.

While it withstood the earthquake in 2006, some of the structures are at risk of collapsing and were sealed off.

We didn’t have a lot of time at Prambanan as we needed to rush to Borobudur in time to catch the sunset. But I managed to get a few quick shots of this ancient relic.
