There are a lot of historical temples in Indonesia that are great to be captured on film, and I’m going to share with you guys one of them. The Penataran Temple in Blitar, East Java.

Penataran Temple, which is also known as “Pallah Temple”, is one of the Hindu temples that were established in Indonesia, it’s also the most glorious and largest temple in East Java.

There are actually three types of temples here: Naga Temple, Angka Tahun Temple, and the Main Temple. In here, there’s also a statue, which is usually called ‘arca’ and some monument or inscription with beautiful historical art carvings on it.

There are different styles of carvings that can be found in this temple. Some of them are carved like medallions and some of them are carved like people. Aside from being a popular tourism spot, Penataran Temple is also a nice place to hold cultural festivals. My uncle told me that when he was in college, he was part of a performance there for a Javanese cultural festival.

So prepare your camera and make some art from this cultural art! :)
