    Hi!  Another UNESCO World Heritage site in Indonesia, this time in Java: The amazingly beautiful Hindu temple Prambanan. It was built in the 10th century and is dedicated to Shiva.

    ACCESS: The extensive Prambanan park is easy accessible. The Conservation and Park Agency is very supportive and permits us to use our vehicles inside the area, thus avoiding long walking distances. The Prambanan Temple can be observed from many angles. Dwi advocacy sept 18x

    To get up onto Prambanan’s central courtyard, a set of rather steep stairs without need to be overcome. So far, no ramp is available, but we are in good hope this will change in the near future. We keep lobbying for it! Very unfortunately, a stair-free back entrance has recently been closed and cannot be used by wheelchair users anymore.

    Once on the central courtyard it is easy to stroll around between the impressive temple buildings towering above the visitor. Visitors with visual impairment are allowed to palpate the reliefs with gloves

    Very very worth a visit!
