Indonesia abound in monuments of the past. There are the temples
of the Buddhist and Hindu dynasties; Hindu temples of Prambanan
and the Dieng Plateau, the "kraton" (palace) of sultans
in Surakarta, Yogyakarta, the Maimun palace of the Sultanate of
Deli (in Medan), the Hall of Justice in Bali, ruins of ancient fortresses
and museums, mosques and churches steeped in folklore. Graves of
past royalty and national heroes are also monuments whereas many
war graves of World War II still hold a certain interest.
The main destination areas contain many of these places of interest
which are easily accessible.
