Chapter Summary

On 20 December 1953, a great feast was organized to celebrate one year of completion of the restoration of the śiva temple in the Lora Jonggrang complex at Prambanan. This marked the splendid conclusion of the largest project ever undertaken by the Archaeological Service in Indonesia. This chapter takes the liberty of giving an eyewitness report about some of the things which are to be seen and which are happening now, the end of 1954, at Prambanan for those who do not have the fortune to witness this for themselves. It begins with a general orientation of the site. At the northern and southern extremities of the courtyard containing the six temples stand which are called small 'court' temples.
