Sunset in the Prambanan style
|Prambanan temple, Angkor style of temple dome|
Prambanan is one of the only two historic temples that I know to be housing a Brahma temple., the other is Pushkar in Rajastan, India.

Best time to visit With the sun setting behind the temple, the domes are a sight for the noon-evening traveler. All of the temples can be covered in a few hours and try to time your visit in the second half of the day.
Shoppers can have a blast with all the hawkers outside the temple. It is almost a shopping village outside the temple and after sunset these guys will sell you at discounted prices before shutdown for the day. Tribal art is one thing I bought and recommend. These are cheap and serve as great souvenirs while contributing to the local economy.
