field of ruins

Ruins of the minor shrines surrounding the main temples in Prambanan.­ This looks like a giant puzzle, with many pieces missing as those ruins were used for centuries as a source of construction stones by the surrounding villages.­ There is no plan to reconstruct or restore any of those small shrines.­
