The Temples of Central Java

Candi Borobodur is the largest Buddhist temple in the world and Candi Prambanan is the largest Hindu temple outside of India and both are easily visited from Yogyakarta in Central Java, Indonesia. In this talk we will discover how both Hinduism and Buddhism came from India to Sumatra, Java and Bali, and learn what is known of the history of these massive temple complexes. There are also many smaller but equally interesting temples in the surrounding area and as time allows we will also explore Candi Mendut, Candi Sewu, Candi Plaosan, Candi Sari and the Kraton Ratu Boko.
