On the slopes of Mount Ungaran in the temperate climate of Java’s hilly terrain, perches several small ancient temples amid verdant hills, lush vegetable fields, and pine forest trees. It was a beautiful day, the sky was clear, the sun shone brightly and my horse 'Zen' was calm and steady. Finally, I was at Candi Gedong Songo—the hidden gem of Central Java, Indonesia.
In Javanese, Candi means temple, Gedong means building, and Songo is the number nine. But Although Candi Gedong Songo directly translates to “Nine Temples”, only five temples remain intact and standing today, the rest are merely ruins.
Built between 730 and 780, the temples are one of the oldest in Java. As a matter of fact, the humble Gedong Songo predates and pioneered the way for the bigger and more popular Borobudur and Prambanan temples of Yogyakarta.
