Sukuh temple

Sukuh temple building gives the impression of a striking simplicity for the visitors. The impression gained from the temple quite different from those obtained from the major temples in Central Java, others, such as Prambanan and Borobudur. Even the shape of the temple Sukuh be similar to Maya in Mexico cultural heritage or cultural heritage Incas in South America. This structure will also remind visitors of its shape like a pyramid in Egypt.

The impression of simplicity caught the attention of acclaimed Dutch archaeologist W.F Stutterheim in the year of 1930. He tried to explain it by giving three arguments:

  • First, the possibility of the temple sculptors Sukuh not a mason but Persian carpenter from the village and not from the palace
  • Second, Sukuh temples made ​​with a bit hasty so less tidy
  • Third, the political situation ahead of time with the collapse of Majapahit as urged by the forces of Islam Demak is not possible to create a large and magnificent temple
