The Temple-Mountains of Prambanan and Borobudur
This chapter explores the famous Javanese sites of Prambanan and Borobudur, examining their cultural history and the restoration and conservation efforts of these sites in more recent times. The Indonesian archipelago is home to some of the oldest remaining architectural monuments in Southeast Asia. Although several sites date to the late sixth or early seventh centuries, the largest temple and city ruins, the Prambanan and Borobudur sites in particular, cluster chronologically around the late eighth to mid-ninth centuries CE. These monuments constitute one of several fruitful combinations of local practice and outside influence, a coalescence of creative imagination that scholars now believe gave rise to the present heritage of sites throughout the region.
