Prambanan is a massive Hindu temple complex (also known as Rara Jonggrang complex) located 11 miles northeast of Yogyakarta in Indonesia. Built around 900 AD by the rulers of the Sanjaya dynasty of the Mataram Kingdom, this complex houses multiple temples dedicated to the gods and their vehicles, and rishis (sages) of Hindu mythology.
