Prambanan : Michelin's recommendations
This little town's reputation is built upon its immense 9C Hindu temple, a wonder of Indo-Javanese art which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has also, unfortunately, become better known for the earthquake that seriously damaged it in 2006. The site is now open again, but still undergoing restoration. It seems it is destined to be constantly "reinvented": since being initially discovered by chance in the 1930s by a peasant digging in the area, it has not yet undergone any thorough archaeological excavation.
