The Prambanan Masterpiece and The Classic Love Story from Indonesia

Indonesia is home to The Prambanan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located in Yogyakarta. It was just apt that hubby chose this “Prambanan” souvenir in lieu of the souvenir plates (he didn’t see any souvenir plates in Indonesia) that he usually takes home from his travels.

He brought this “Prambanan” souvenir years ago. Several trips to Indonesia after, he brought home Rama and Sinta last week:

Sinta and Rama
Sinta and Rama

Rama and Sinta (Sita in the original Indian epic) are the lovers in the great Hindu epic Ramayana. Aside from adding to our travel collection, this souvenir made me google about the Ramayana and the love story of these lovers. It’s as if I was transported to a museum in Indonesia learning about the heroic feats of Rama and the admirable loyalty of Sinta.

Interesting!
