Prambanan, Indonesia

I think that all those UNESCO lovers and collectors, would like the set of cards today.....
btw, at the latest meeting in Quebec, there were 27 new UNESCO sites in the whs list....this is one of the reasons why i had given up my aim of focusing on missing countries and UNESCO's.....ill never manage to get them all....coz even if i do, some new things to collect would come up....never-ending story :) and its really too much effort and time for me.....well, you actually know that already....

The first one comes from Indonesia, and shows Prambanan, the largest Hindu temple compound, located in Central Java.
It is characterised by its tall and pointed architecture, typical of the Hindu temple architecture and by the 47m high central building inside a large complex of individual temples.

Now, i was amazed at how much information there can be found about this site....all of them worth talking about! But its pointless to post it all, coz its enormous amounts of info....so ill just leave it up to you to click this link and read more about it....
