Magnificent Panataran Temples in Java, Indonesia

Written By: herbrunbridge - May• 31•10

The temples at Panataran are noted for their architecture as well as for their extraordinary sculptures, and are located in a beautiful setting. Considered by several scholars to be among the best examples of East Javanese architecture and sculpture, they were initially constructed in 1200 ACE, but took another 300 or so years to finish. These keystones of the Majapahit dynasty are best seen in the late afternoon sun, and there is also a very nice museum onsite. 

The entrance of the temple complex is at GPS S08°00.962’ E112°12.554’
The museum is located at GPS S08°00.760’ E112°12.499’ 

Just 16 km from the city of Blitar, the Panataran temples can also been seen in a day trip from the city of Malang as well.
