Sambisari Temple (Candi Sambisari or Sambisari Temple) is an amazing and unusual temple in the vicinity of Yogyakarta and not far from the Prambanan temple complex, usually they are visited together in one trip. It is dedicated to the Hindu deity Shiva, built approximately in the IX century. For a long time it was abandoned and unknown, and was rediscovered by a local farmer only in 1966.
The peculiarity of the temple is that it is located about 5 meters below ground level in an even square depression. In fairness, it should be said that the deepening appeared only as a result of archaeological excavations after its discovery, but, apparently, it was originally built in this way. In general, the temple is very interesting and can be included in the mandatory route from Yogyakarta on the way to Prambanan.
