Plaosan temple complex in Central Java

Only 3km from the temple complex at Prambanan stand the two nearly identically restored main temples of Plaosan. Each has carvings from the Ramayana, and rooms containing female Bottisattiva. You can either walk or drive here from Prambanan, and you may feel you’ll enjoy it more here, as Plaosan has far fewer tourists, so you can be alone with the remains of the temples, a welcome respite from the hoards at nearby Borobudur. The site begs for restoration, but carries a wonderful aura nevertheless. The Plaosan complex may be found at GPS S07°44.493’  E110°30.255’
