- The Story
Lately afternoon, I came to Prambanan with my friend, Aneesa from Vacantme with my motorcycle. I picked up her on Ling Lung Coffee and it was our first time meet. Took about 30 minutes to Prambanan, we arrived safely then bought two tickets. She tried to get student price because we’re still in collage but the operator refused her ask so we bought with normal price and of course there is a different for domestic and international tourist. We passed the gate and walked to the temples, the sun was hot and lot of people came.
Prambanan has 6 temples, 3 main temples are dedicated for Shiva, Visnu, and Brahma. The biggest one is Shiva and the most popular temple. The view from Shiva was nice. When we went there, the officer did some maintenance to Brahma. Some people sat behind the temples and enjoyed the sunset but we must leave before dark. We didn’t have enough time to learn more about Prambanan because the lack of time and the rain came just after we left the parking area. But I’d say that is a nice trip with Aneesa. Hope to see her again and of course another blogger and traveler.
