Ramayana Ballet - Prambanan, Yogyakarta 
Ramayana from word "Rama"and "Ayana" that means a journey of Rama. The Ramayana Ballet story (compiled from Purawisata) : 

In Kendrayana forest, the King of Alengka RAHWANA ask Kalamaricha one of his soldiers to change himself into the Golden Deer and ask him to go to seduce RAMA, SINTA, and Laksmana. In other part of the same forest, RAMA - SINTA - Laksamana are enjoying the freshness of the bright weather by gathering flowers and watching beautiful animals living in the forest. Suddenly an animal with golden fur appears. SINTA is attracted and she wants to posses the animal. RAMA - SINTA - Laksmana try to catch it but the beautiful animal is very difficult to touch, then the Golden Deer runs away.
After RAMA leaves his wife, SINTA as if hears the sound of an injured man, she ask Laksamana to look for his brother but he refuses because he knows it's not Rama's voice, it's Golden Deer's that imitates the voice of RAMA. Since her order disobeyed, SINTA accuces Laksmana of wishing her after the death of RAMA. Hearing his Laksmana becomes very sad, he swears that he won't marry any woman in his whole life.
As a sign of his oath he cuts off his genital. SINTA is astonished and very sorry. Finally Laksmana goes to meet RAMA. Before he leaves his sister in-law alone, Laksmana makes a magical circle surrounding SINTA, nobody can go into the circle and he also tells her not to get out of the circle until the arrival of RAMA and Laksmana. Unexpectedly, RAHWANA comes down from the sky. He is very glad to notice SINTA without any guard. He wants to kidnap her as soon as possible and takes her to Alengka Kingdom.
Unfortunately he can't approach her because of the magical circle although he has exerted all of his super natural power. Then RAHWANA changes his appearance into a very old man who looks very thirsty and comes near SINTA. On seeing this, SINTA can't stand and then help the poor old man. Without realizing the danger, she stretches one of her arms out of the circle in order to give the old man something to drink. The old man who actually is RAHWANA takes SINTA's hand out of the circle quickly and takes her away. In the sky they meet Jatayu, the king of birds who wants to save the Princess Sinta but Jatayu is defeated and falls onto the ground. Before Jatayu dies, he tells RAMA that SINTA is kidnapped by RAHWANA.
On the way to Alengka, RAMA and Laksmana bump across with the white monkey HANOMAN, who is ordered by Sugriwa to find someone to help him to fight Subali in order to get Goa Kiskenda back.
RAMA doesn't mind and succeeds in killing Subali, and then he is crowned to be the king of monkey in Pancawati Kingdom. As a king, RAMA orders Hanoman to go to Alengka to see the condition of SINTA. In Alengka after giving RAMA's ring to SINTA, and as an answer SINTA sends her hairpin ornament to RAMA. HANOMAN wants to know the strength of RAHWANA's Kingdom, soon afterwards he destroys the Arga-Soka garden.
Knowing this, RAHWANA becomes very angry and commands his men to burn the white creature but HANOMAN doesn't die because of his super natural power, event he takes with him some burning woods and flies in the sky, then he drops them throughout the buildings. When the battle between RAMA's monkey soldiers and RAHWANA's giant soldiers takes place, Hindrajit asks Kumbakarna for help but he can't win the fight even is defeated by RAMA. Hindrajit wants to support his uncle unfortunately Laksmana is able to finish the fight. Hindrajit runs away reporting the situation to King RAHWANA in the palace. RAHWANA goes to fight Rama but at last he is defeated and killed.
HANOMAN fetches SINTA who is very happy to meet her beloved husband, however RAMA rejects her for he suspects about his wife's purity and he asks SINTA to have a holy bath by jumping into the burning fire. SINTA calmly jumps into the holy fire since in her mind she feels that she is totally pure.
The God of Fire Brahma comes down from the heaven and puts the fire out. He tells RAMA that SINTA is really pure. Both SINTA and RAMA pay attribute with their hands folded before their forehands to Brahma. Lastly they return to Pancawati Kingdom happily.

CETHO temple and SUKUH temple

Solo city tours. Cetho temple and Sukuh temple are nice Solo Indonesia tourist attractions on the Mount.Lawu that still fresh cold air. Both are Hindu temples in Indonesia that built in the end of the 15th century with a lot of ornaments, statues, and many symbols that describe society activities in that time. Paying attention to the details in every piece of relief then we will be able to view and understood the ancient Javanese society as part of the ancient world cultures. Both temples also are very impressive temples by mystical place that suitable to a cooling-off or self meditation. It can be connected from that situation which Majapahit royal conflic so people need place like Cetho temple for closing to their God in meditation.

hindu temples in indonesia
view from Ceto temple (north)
In India, the Hindu temple is commonly associated with Mount Meru - the axis of the world - and, more widely, with the universe itself. As the universe is coiled around the cosmic mountain, so the temple must have a centre. As the universe is four-pointed (caturbhr s t i), the temple too is first defined as a square (Kramrisch 1946:161-162; Michell 1988:69-72). This perception of the temple as a Mount Meru most probably prevailed in Southeast Asia 
as well.

Cetho temple has 13 temples terrace but fully restoration 1 - 9 terrace. 13 meanings to reflect 13 God manifestations like we can read at Hindu's book Lontar Wrhaspatti Tattwa.  Beside that, people in that time start to develop the local genius about built a temple to make prehistoric concept that respect to God who living on highest. Cetho temple even in same periode with Sukuh temple Solo, but quite different than Sukuh temple.
In Sukuh temple, we will seen many glory statue of God and many relief of Royal and their servant. So, from all statues and ornaments in Sukuh temple we can feel that this temple not for praying or meditation. Sukuh temple more as a respect temple for the King who has personification as God on earth. One relief at Sukuh temple describe the respect to Kings's funeral with Hindu's ritual prosession.

sukuh temple
sukuh temple
sukuh temple
Frog statue in sukuh temple - sysbolism God Wishnu
Three tortoise sculpture that symbolizes the earth and the incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Notes about Tortoise creature recognized by various civilizations in the world as the great reptiles. In China, tortoise said to be the basis of the beginning of creation. In Japan believed to be the cosmic mountain and is a symbol of the Earth's axis. In India is believed to be the first living beings who have the form of evolution that has spirit and is considered as the axis of the earth as well. American Indians put the tortoise as a symbol of the oldest in the process of life on earth and is known as the Mother Earth. In Greek myth, the turtle is a sacred symbol for the god Aphrodite and Hermes two deities associated with sexuality or the creation of natural contents. In Africa, there is a method called Ifa forecasting using tortoise shell as the basis for forecasting at a certain time. 

Wishnu change as tortoise to help other God to search water spring for life. Scarfing at sukuh more smooth and from massive stone, different than in Cetho that tortoise statue made from many stone and compiled. Why Wishnu illustrated and not Siwa ? We can understand because in that time the situation of the kingdom at the end of Majapahit where many wars then people hope God Vishnu immediately to make a peace on earth.

The unique one in both temple was how to describe the man with hat that their use. That hat   relief remind us to Java leather puppet (wayang) today. Many type of hat we can seen in sukuh temple from people on royal high rank until lowest rank and also the guard. 
Even in the old age of 700 years ago but at that time the community has reached a high level of understanding of the engineering building, technical artists, as well as an understanding of the most important concepts or beliefs that turned out to have continuity with the culture at various places. In this case I am talking about a statue of a turtle.

Turtle is a symbol known in mythology as their appearance and longevity. Therefore, the protective shell and thoroughly charming appearance, sometimes we find that the turtle is a symbol of protection and welfare aspects in particular mythology. Many cultures believe that the turtle is an animal that carries the world on its shell or as supporting the heavens. 
In some indigenous traditions of the Americas, the tortoise is believed to carry the world on top of the shell. Supreme spirit Cheyenne, Maheo, is grandma old turtle shell that supports the earth. Mohawk Nation believe that earthquakes are caused by old granny turtle which was stretch the body due to the weight of the earth that he prop in its shell. 
In ancient history, the people of Mesopotamia believed that the turtle is the symbol of one of their gods, namely Ea. And in Africa, the Yoruba mythology, known Ijapa, the tortoise is in the fairy-tale witch hereditary. 
In Hindu mythology, the world is supported by four elephants standing on a tortoise shell. Akupara is a tortoise in the world carrying the Hindu legend in penggungnya and maintain the balance of the earth and sea. There is one of the avatars of Vishnu, known as Kurma, the giant tortoise. Kurma avatar has a temple, Sri Kurman Temple in Andhra Pradesh, India which is dedicated to him. 
In China, one of the four leading animal is a turtle data that represents the element of water, symbolizing the four cardinal points north. Tortoises are mensimbolkan strength, longevity and immortality. Tortoise is also a real animal that became a symbol of the Chinese nation on the compass, though still looks like a mythological creature in the illustration.
