Java’s temples

I got my cultural fix as I whirled through Yogyakarta and Solo in central Java. These cities are known as cultural hotspots and are home to traditional dancers, musicians, puppeteers, carvers and artists. The cities are also home to Hindu temples, some the last ones built in Java.

  1. Hi Stace, suggest you write a book on your return. This book must, of course, include all your photographs. Lots of love, Jeanette
