This was a second time I’m visiting Yogyakarta and i was attracted to this city because of Borobudur, a great Buddhist monument, and Prambanan, a large Hindu complex.
According to history Hinduism spread in Jogja in the fifth century, followed three centuries later by Buddhism before they were eclipsed by Islam in the 15th century and when Islam spread, most of the Hindus migrated to Bali. However, Hinduism was Indonesia’s main religion for 1,000 over years. Today, there is only 2% of Hindu population in Indonesia.
We visited Jogja for 3 days and went to most of the Hindu temples. In Indonesia temple is called as Chandi.
