this buddist temple located in the Prabanam Complex, the way when you walk to Sewu Temple after visit Prabanam main temple.-it is relatively small, built on a square plan extending from north to south. It is difficult to find out the exact size of the temple since the area of the temple is surrounded by locked fence. The base is about 2 m high. Reliefs in symmetrical pattern are carved along the upper edge of the base, but none are found on the walls of the base. A staircase used as an entrance way to the platform lies on the east side of the base.-The name Bubrah (Javanese) means badly damaged condition. It is not obvious whether the temple is called bubrah because it is already 'bubrah' ( in damaged condition)how to go: join Prabanam tour.

Vieux murailles à visiter absolument lors de votre descente vers Borobodur. A éviter les marchands ambulants un peu agressifs sur place. Ne vous laissez pas tenter et surtout ne payez pas le prix exagéré qu'ils demandent.
