Not only has a magnificent building, Prambanan Temple is also full of inherent historical value and does not escape from one of the historical parts in Yogyakarta.

The participants of the 3rd IGoPSS were very enthusiastic about the Ramayana Ballet because it was their first time watching an entertainment program as well as learning history through theater media. In addition, they were very amazed because they were presented with a very interesting show and filled with stunning attractions. “I really enjoyed this show, even I didn’t feel sleepy watching the show. Besides, this is a new thing for me because, where I come from (United Kingdom) there are no educational entertainment programs like this. watch the cinema, go to the mall, or go to a cafe. Therefore, I am very amazed by this show,” said Aleksander Franciszkiewics from Stanford University. (ARP)
