The temple is an extraordinary structure constructed in 9-10th century during the period of two kings namely Rakai Pikatan and Rakai Balitung. Towering up to 47 meters, the foundation of the temple has fulfilled the desire of the founder to show Hindu triumph in Java Island. There is a legend that Javanese people always tell about this temple. As the story tells, there was a king named Bandung Bondowoso who loved a woman named Roro Jonggrang. To refuse his love, Jonggrang asked Bandung Bondowoso to make a temple for her with one thousand statues only in one-night time. The Jonggrang requested villagers to pound rice and to set a fire in order to look like morning had broken. He had completed 999 statues but was cheated by Jonggrang, so he cursed Jonggrang to be the thousandth statue.
This complex has three important temples in the yard, namely Vishnu, Brahma, and Shiva temples. These three temples are symbols of Trimurti in Hindu belief. All of them face to the east. Each temple has accompanying temples facing to the west, Nandini for Shiva, Angsa for Brahma, and Garuda for Vishnu.
Despite the fact that Lord Brahma is known as the creator of the universe in Hindu mythology, there are only a few temples in his name of which the Prambanan temple is believed to be one of the first Brahma temples in the world. Its really strange why it is that way, but thats a fact and a mysterious one too.
