Java: Guide to the Temples of Borobudur & Prambanan

(Indonesia Travel Guide)

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


RECENTLY UPDATED FOR 2017! With more than 100 high-resolution images and insightful descriptions that put the temples in context, this is the definitive travel guide to Java's temples: Borobudur and Prambanan. 

Java is home to two of the most impressive temples in all of southeast Asia: Buddhist Borobudur and Hindu Prambanan. Borobudur (built 760-830) rises gradually in a series of majestic tiers, a testament to its stupa-mound inspiration; while Prambanan (built 850-856) soars vertically, drawing on south Indian temple prototypes. Both inspire with their innovative architectural designs, world-class narrative reliefs and compelling sculptures. Still infused with their historical magic, they are yours to discover.
