Plaosan Temple, Yogyakarta

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.

  • Amazing old Buddhist temple surrounded with paddy field. I recommend you to visit this temple at 4 pm. Enjoy the sunset, and wait for the miracles come.
  • Big complex of Buddhist temples. The twin temple are unique and as beauty as Prambanan temple at the Southern area. Best visit in the morning at sunrise and more romantic at sunset on clear day.
  • Gorgeous temple in the midst of paddy field. It was nice to still witness the statue mostly a whole at the inside, though most of them are still need to revitalize again..
  • One of my favorite Buddhis temple in Yogyakarta. This temple also become Buddhis school and bording house from monk in the past.
  • Exotic historical places. Underrated because the location near the popular one : Prambanan temple.
