About the tour

Join me on this interactive live virtual tour and we’ll explore the wilds and legends of Plaosan Complex – home of the famous twin Buddhist Temples near Prambanan and Borobudur Temples of Java, Indonesia. A story of love and a monument to tolerance and acceptance, the temples were built by Rakai Pikatan, a Hindu of the Syailendra Dynasty in the 9th century AD, and his wife, Pramodyawardani, an adherent of Buddhism. The distinctive and majestic architecture displays harmonious touches of Hindu and Buddhist elements together. The Plaosan Temple complex also has beautiful natural scenery. Expanses of rice fields surround the temple as far as the eye can see. While serving as a meditative site, at times you can enjoy the splendor of the temple while seeing farmers plowing the fields or watching carts pass by, complete with their distinctive jingling sounds. During our tour, you’ll be able to ask me questions and chat with fellow participants as we explore this ancient sacred site. This exotic yet serene live-stream walking tour will inspire you with its peace and beauty.

Meet Sang Pramuwisata

Sang Pramuwisata

My name is Mukhlas which means sincere, and I love to do everything sincerely and with all my heart. In Bahasa Indonesia, Sang Pramuwisata means the tour guide. I love to show you the beauty of my country. I live in Yogyakarta, a city that is full of heritages, arts and culture, cuisine, and tradition. I have worked in this city as a professional tour guide since 2012. I graduated from Yogyakarta State University, with a major in Literature. With this knowledge, I am well equipped to explain to people about the stories and literature that relate to Yogyakarta, Java, and Indonesia. I love to share everything that this country has to offer!

A pleasant walk around the outside of the Yogyakarta Plaosan Temple. I understand that we could not enter the grounds. The guide had all the information we could need and the postcard opportunities were splendid. One small request though.. please allow us a bit long to take our postcards and hold the gimbal steady otherwise a perfect tour.
