  • Ratu Boko is an archaeological site known to modern Javanese as Kraton Ratu Boko or Ratu Boko's Palace. Ratu Boko is located on a plateau, about three kilometres south of Lara Jonggrang Prambanan temple complex in Yogyakarta Indonesia. The original name of this site is still unclear, however the local inhabitants named this site after King Boko, the legendary king mentioned in Loro Jonggrang folklore. In Javanese, Ratu Boko means "Stork King".

  • Candi Boko, named from the name of queen ancient Javanese kingdom. His name is "Ratu Boko". In earlier times story, this location is Ratu Boko's palace. The large land area Boko Temple is 2,500 m². The large is almost same with Borobudur Temple. From the local belief, all statues from Boko Temple complex was removed to Borobudur Temple.
  • Believed to be former Mataram kingdom palace. Very beautiful historical "garden". Best place for photography
