Plaosan Temple, Yogyakarta
Categories: Ruins, Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Visit Plaosan Temple to see the imposing twin temples of this partially restored 9th-century Buddhist complex. Two box-shaped temples identical in style sit side by side, their roofs a mass of bulbous stupas (pointed reliquaries), rising to a central pinnacle. Step inside to view impressive sculptured reliefs on the walls and stone statues guarding the empty lotus pedestal of bronze deities, long since pilfered. Two fearsome dwarapala--huge stone guardians--guard the entrances to each temple. Hundreds of smaller shrines and stupas surround the twin main temples, a handful of which have undergone restoration. Uniquely for structures like this, the complex bears an inscription with the names of those who built it. Put Plaosan Temple into our Yogyakarta vacation builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
