Photographer's Note

a close view of artwork on the Prambanan temple


Prambanan is a 9th-century Hindu temple compound dedicated to the Trimurti, the expression of God as the Creator (Brahma), the Preserver (Vishnu) and the Destroyer (Shiva).

The temple compound, located approximately 17 kilometres northeast of Yogyakarta, is a must-visit on any Java trip.


This picture zooms in on a detail of the art cut in stone. The monkey king Hanuman brings his army to help Rama and rescue Sita.

More stone monkeys in the workshop.
