Back in the 9th century, when Buddhists gifted Borobudur to Java, their Hindu brethren didn’t sit back and do nothing. They set to work on Prambanan, an equally impressive compound and the largest Hindu temple site in the country. The UNESCO World Heritage Site suffered damage during the 2006 earthquake, but its 47m-high tower still stands strong. Tour guides may try and convince you that the two temples were built in a competition between the Buddhist and Hindu kingdoms. Take a cup of Loewak coffee.
