PRAMBANAM - SIVA TEMPLE

Siva Temple

Among such temples, a remarkable complex of one hundred and fifty shrines at Prambanam deserves mention. Though most of them are in ruins, or neglected due to impact of Buddhism, they enshrine several adorable gods and are receiving regular pujas according to sastric injunctions. Both Hindus and god-minded natives are participating in the periodical festivals, in addition to attending the regular, prayer services with fervor due.

The Siva temple at Loro Djon grang testifies to this and lo! its glory is on increase with the passage of time. The temple bears striking resemblance -to the South Indian Sivan Tirukkoils in points of construction and traditions too. The tall tower, spacious courtyards and several niches with adorable gods reflect the glory of Saivism, though encircled by religions quite antagonistic to it, in nature, and adherence to customs. It contains grand specimens of sculptural pieces adorning its walls. It has a gallery beautified with 42 bas relief's illustrating several episodes from the Ramayana epic. It is a visit-worthy place of worship, irrespective of one's creed or cult.

It is at Prambanam, one of the flourishing cities in Java, and a principal part of Indonesia enjoying all types of transport facilities.
