Banyunibo Temple

February 25, 2017

Banyuibo Temple is the only standing temple among the ruins of the Buddhist temple complex at the western slope of Baturagung hills. The tempple has a unique architecture having a rectangular plan with saddle roof-like crowned by a stupa. This makes the temple differ from other temples of the classical period in Central Java. The main chamber is empty but the relief of Hariti and Kuwera on the inner wall tells that this temple is dedicated to the Buddhist God and Goddess of Wealth. Other reliefs of Celestial beings such as kinara-kinari (celestial musicians) and apsaras (nymphs) are depicted beautifully on the outer walls
