    Prambanan Temple (also called Loro Jonggrang) is a complex consisting of 240 temples, which was built during the heyday of Sailendra’s powerful dynasty in mid-9th century central Java in what would become Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The spectacular temple site is the country’s largest Hindu temple compound and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Most of the main temples collapsed during earthquakes; some of them have been reconstructed several times, while others are still in ruins.

    Since ancient times, people have devoted considerable resources to their places of worship. Different cultures had various styles and concepts of religious architecture but they have always fascinated viewers, regardless of faith.

    Here are some amazing temples, churches, mosques and other religious buildings that will definitely impress you with their breath-taking beauty.
