Video Mapping Prambanan is a remarkable historical time travel through UNESCO’s world heritage of the largest Hindu temple compound in Indonesia.

A mentor starring the maestro of Dramatic Dance, Didik Nini Thowok, takes his grandchild back to the 8th century AD when the temples were first built. In the early 11th century, Prambanan temple collapsed due to Merapi’s volcanic eruption and earthquake. 

The legend of Rara Jonggrang then emerges to explain the supernatural origin of the temples. A folklore depicting a story of a beautiful mourning Princess Roro Jonggrang who only agrees to a marriage proposal by Prince Bandung Bondowoso, who recently killed her father in a furious battle, if he can construct a thousand temples for her in only one night. The prince conjures with demons to help him build the first 999 temples, but failed to build the last one when the princess thwarts his efforts, leaving the temple unfinished. Furious of this deception, the prince places a curse on Rara Jonggrang, turning her into a stone statue Durga becoming the feature of the final temple, completing its construction.

After the collapse, archeologists have rediscovered Prambanan in the 17 th century. Extensive restorations have been conducted since 1918 using both modern and traditional methods to strengthen the temple’s structure. Soekarno, the first President of Indonesia, inaugurated the temple in 1953 as it continues to become one of the most iconic, cultural, and magnificent monument that we enjoy today.
