Why Lumbung Temple is special ?

Lumbung or Candi Lumbung is a 9th-century Buddhist temple compound located within the complex of Prambanan Temple Tourism Park, Central Java, Indonesia. Lumbung temple is situated several hundreds meter to the south of Sewu temple in the subdistrict of Klaten, Surakarta. The temple bears so much similarities with nearby Sewu temple, except it is smaller in scale. It remains uncertain whether Lumbung is the temple’s real name or it is so called by the community around temple because its shape looks like a rice barn. The sacred Buddhist building is a cluster of temples consisting of 17 buildings, with the main temple placed in the center surrounded by 16 ancillary shrines. Blocks of andesite cover the temple’s court.

The main temple in Lumbung Temple is no longer perfect shape, the roof of the temple no longer exists, but it is still stunning beauty of the temple with a variety of carvings and reliefs contained in the walls of this temple. The main temple has a height of about 2.5 meters, there are 9 pieces with niches, but none of niches containing statues, probably because of the hands of ignorant who makes the statues in the temple barn no longer exists.

I think the effort is great archaeological department.Reconstruct the building is ever lost or damaged.Where many parts are still unaccounted for, due to latent or looting in the past.This is one of the cultural wealth of our nation.This achievement, how our community can make a great building of the mound.Not just bricks piled, but many were engraved ornaments, which will be full of moral and religious messages.A local wisdom that has no rival.

Маленький и сильно разрушенный храм. Но мне как фотографу любителю его разрушенность показалась очень фотогеничной.

ブブラ寺院と同じく、ロロジョングラン寺院からセウ寺院に行く途中にありますが、跡地という感じです。修復が待たれます。
