One of the highlights of our recent trip to Indonesia was to visit the 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist temple known as Borobodur. It is an imposing building that was built using black lava stone. As a result, the monochrome colour of the building is a bit intimidating. The official shop at the Temple compound has a very limited selection of items to purchase. After leaving Borobodur, we had an excellent lunch on the way to Prambanan. The restaurant staff managed to prepare something vey special for my wife who is allergic to garlic and other spices. The Prambanan Temple Compound was built in the 10th century. It is a collection of very large Hindu temples dedicated to such deities as Shiva, Visnu and Ganesh. It is a truly imposing site and well worth making the visit. Once again, the black lava stone that was used to build the compound gives it a lugubrious look, especially if the day is overcast. Our guide Toto was a bit testy at the beginning but seemed to have cheered up after lunch!!
