Epic Holiday: The Grand Temple

The Grand Temple: Candi Prambanan
Following the ride with the white horse, we proceeded with our plan for the day, which was to visit some of the areas of interest around the region, namely Candi Prambanan as well as the city of Yogyakarta. There are also some other temples around, including the famous Borobudur Temple, but since we started out late, we decided to just focus on one temple for the day.

Some people are of the opinion that this temple is one of the most beautiful Hindu temple in the world. I would so whole-heartedly agree to the assertion. With its beautifully carved stone structures rising majestically into the sky, the whole complex is easily recognizable from afar. Even the ruins around the perimeter of the central (fully renovated) temples served only to add to the whole mystique of the place.

Anyway, once we got there of course we started taking pictures, and that included Mama, Daddy and Tante Rina:

(Haha... as usual, while Mama likes to take pics of people taking picture, no pics of Mama taking pics. Maybe next time Mama will engage a professional second shooter, ya?)

After some wacky pictures, we moved on into the central part of the temple:

There are many pics of Tante, but surely there are also pics of Kecil and her Mama & Daddy:

We even went up into one of the temples, but there was no good pics of the dark interior. It did not quite show in the pics, but actually both Mama and Daddy were still suffering from a mild stomach bug that day, which made it a bit difficult for us to follow in the footsteps of the feisty Little One. Still, I think we managed to enjoy our time at the temple.

And on that high note, we'll end the post here to be continued next time. Cheers!
