Java Jamboree: From a Distance

About 18 km east of Yogyakarta City is the Prambanan temple complex, the largest Hindu temple in Indonesia and in South East Asia. On 27 May 2006, Yogyakarta suffered a 6.3-magnitude earthquake. The earthquake did not only claim the lives of 5,782 people and injured some 36,299 people but more than 135,000 houses were damaged. Prambanan temple too was not spared. Large pieces of debris, including carvings, were scattered over the ground and the temple was closed to the public. Someone I met who visited the temple then told me they could only see the temple from a distance...
