Photographer's Note

A photograph that I took at Plaosan temple last week
I choose this angle, by adding the root of the tree as a fourground, to add the mysterious atmosphere..
I was there all alone that morning.. walking around the complex of the temple looking for a different angle.. What I was afraid was snake, coz this animal love to hide under the stones/ruins of this temple..

Plaosan temple, also known as the 'Plaosan Complex', is one of the Buddhist temples located in Bugisan village, Prambanan district, Central Java, Indonesia. Candi Plaosan covers an area of 2,000 square meters with an elevation of 148 meters above sea level. Candi Plaosan is surrounded by paddy fields along with vegetation such as banana and corn.

Plaosan temple was built in the mid 9th century by Sri Kahulunnan or Pramodawardhani, the daughter of Samaratungga, descendent of Sailendra Dynasty, and who was married to Rakai Pikatan in the Hindu tradition. The Plaosan complex is an ensemble of two Buddhist temples, Plaosan Lor and Plaosan Kidul. The temples are separated by a road; Plaosan Lor is located in the North and Plaosan Kidul in the South. Plaosan Lor consists of two main temples and an open area known as a mandapa. Both temples have an entrance, a gate, and the guardian statue known as Dwarapala. Plaosan Lor and Plaosan Kidul are considered to originally be one complex.
