Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the study of Prambanan and Śiva temple. The Brahmā and Viṣṇu temples are in many respects similar to the Śiva temple, although of much smaller dimensions (20x20x33 m) and simpler in design. Thus each of them has only one temple chamber which can only be reached via a stairway in the projecting part of the eastern side of the temple. The names of these temples derive from the statues of Brahmā and Viṣṇu that used to stand in their chambers. Both temples have an ambulatory passageway bounded by a balustrade encircling it, just like the Śiva temple.

Keywords: Śiva temple; Brahmā; Prambanan; Viṣṇu
