the Exotic Hindu Temple

(viewed 367 times)
Bookmark and Share
The present name of the temple,
Prambanan' , was derived from the name
of Prambanan village where the temple
stood, this name probably being the
corrupted Javanese pronunciation of
"Para Brahman" ("The Supreme
Brahman"). It is also possible Prambanan
comes from Javanese root '(e)mban'
which means carries a duty, reflecting
gods role in the world, or the villagers
duty in relation to the temple.
Comparable with parahyangan (western
part of Java island), comes from the root
hyang, means god, or (e)yang, means
ancestor in Javanese.
