Is Prambanan Temple the world’s most graceful and most beautiful Hindu Temple? That’s the tagline that you see and read in tourism brochures in Yogyakarta, but without a question mark. Is it really? Ok, I’ve been to India where there’s a huge Hindu population and I visited some of the temples there – and I’d say that, yes, Prambanan Temple deserves that title.
At first glance, the architectural design made think of the Angkor Wat of Cambodia.
While they might look the same, it is important to know that Prambanan is a Hindu temple while Angkor Wat is a Buddhist temple.
