Prambanan is a medieval temple city in central Java. Prambanan temple compound consists of three main monuments with another three complementary temples and hundreds of more temple buildings around. The whole compound was build in the decades from 850 CE on. Prambanan is not only impressive because of the sheer size of the monuments but, above all, due to the highest quality of crafts and arts. The monuments of Prambanan are seen as a response to the closeby Borobodur monument and certainly many of the same artisans were involved in the construction of both sides.
