Hindu Temple in Indonesia-Sukuh ( Indonesian)

भारतीय वास्तुकला (Wonderful Indian Architecture)'s photo.Sukuh ( Indonesian : Candi Sukuh is a 15th-century Javanese-Hindu temple that is located on the western slope of Mount Lawu ( elev. 910 m (3000 ft)) on the bord...er between Central and East Java provinces.
The central main pyramid of the complex sits at the rear of the highest of three terraces. Originally, worshippers would have accessed the complex through a gateway at the westernor lowest terrace. To the left of the gate is a carving of a monster eating a man, birds in a tree, and a dog, which is thought to be a chronogram representing 1437 CE, the likely date of the temple's consecration.
The main structure of Sukuh temple is like no other ancient edifice; a truncated pyramid reminiscent of a Maya monument and surrounded by monoliths and meticulously carved life-sized figures.
