IndonesiaTravelVisit.com | Different from other temples that are nearby, Pawon Temple has vent in its chambers. Pawon Temples becomes the midpoint linking Mendut Temple and Borobudur Temple.
When IndonesiaTravelVisit.com arrived at Pawon Temple, the atmosphere looked so calm. Javanese song was playing softly either coming from residents' houses or souvenirs stalls. Kala Makara ornament was displayed above the entrance of the temple. The pyramid-shaped roof of the temple is decorated with small stupas. As a depiction of Mount Meru, on the wall of Pawon Temple, there are reliefs of creatures such as Kinara-kinari (human-headed bird), relief of coffers, relief of Kalpataru tree or Hayati tree, and relief of Bodhisattva. All reliefs are carved on the outside wall of the temple. While inside the temple, there is no relief or statue encountered, there is just an empty cubicle.
Shortly before leaving Pawon Temple, IndonesiaTravelVisit.com' mind was overwhelmed by the variety of questions. Is it possible that Pawon Temple at a period of time used as a place for cremating kings? Used as a combustion remaining equipment of a religious ritual? Used as a resting place for pilgrims before reaching Borobudur? All the thoughts occupied IndonesiaTravelVisit.com' mind and made this trip more meaningful, not just having fun.
