[VISITED PLACE]

RATU BOKO TEMPLE :
A GREAT ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE IN YOGYAKARTA



WHAT IS RATU BOKO TEMPLE?

Ratu Boko is an archaeological site known to modern Javanese as Kraton Ratu Boko or Ratu Boko's Palace. Ratu Boko is located on a plateau, about three kilometres south of Lara Jonggrang Prambanan temple complex in Yogyakarta Indonesia. The original name of this site is still unclear, however the local inhabitants named this site after King Boko, the legendary king mentioned in Loro Jonggrang folklore. The site covers 16 hectares in two hamlets (Dawung and Sambireja) of the village of Bokoharjo and Prambanan. Unlike the other huge heritage of Borobudur and Prambanan temples, the Ratu Boko was destroyed – only some parts of the palace can be seen as parts of buildings.

WHAT TO EXPLORE AT RATU BOKO TEMPLE? 


From this palace, you will feel peace and will be able to see Yogyakarta city and Prambanan temple with Merapi Mountain as the background. The area of the palace as wide as 250,000 m2 is divided into four, namely center, west, southeast, and east parts. The center part consists of the main gateway, square, Combustion Temple, pond, square terrace and assembly hall. Meanwhile, the southeast part includes hall, platform, three temples, pond, and a complex for princess. The caves, Buddha effigy, and a pond are in east part while the west part consists of hills only.
As a heritage building, King Boko Palace is different from other inheritances. Most of other buildings are in the forms of temple or shrine, while this place - as the name implies - shows characteristics of a dwelling place. This can be known from the wooden poles and roofs, even though we can only see remains of stone building. Investigate the palace in more details and you will know more. One of them is the beautiful scenery when the sun is setting in the west and it is considered as the most beautiful sunset on earth.



Those are the pictures that I've taken around Ratu Boko Temple :D

HOW TO GET THERE?
Ratu Boko Palace Complex is located on a plateau, south of Prambanan in the province of Yogyakarta, Indonesia. To get to the Ratu Boko Palace, take the minor road from Prambanan towards Piyungan for less than half an hour and you will easily find the palace complex.

HOW WAS MY FEELING AFTER VISITING RATU BOKO TEMPLE?

After visiting this place, I'm feeling sooooo happy. Why? It's because I love everything about archeological site and Ratu Boko Temple I think it is one of the best archeological site in Indonesia because of it's beauty and it's atmosphere. The other reason is Ratu Boko Temple is very photogenic and Instagram-able, hehehe, so this place is compatible with my photography hobby. I can't tell you a lot of information about Ratu Boko Temple, but I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THIS TEMPLE FOR YOU TO VISIT OR YOU'LL REGRET IT!  HEHEHE :P
