Ratu Boko Temple is one of the fascinating ancient temples in Yogyakarta.Here you can see how the displays a blend of Hindu and Buddhist architectural elements.

The Ratu Boko Temple is considered to have been built as a dormitory for monks, according to inscriptions dating back to the mid 700's. It is also a remainder of King Boko's palace built around 8th century. Ratu Boko Temple was originally named Abhayagiri Vihara. Several legends say that the temple was used for staging mortal combats.
