Candi Sukuh : A Sex Temple

It's build almost a milenium ago. This unusual temple was located at village of Berjo, some fifty kilometres east of Solo, Central Java. I have visited that temple many times since my house is just about 30 km from there. This temple is small but unique. Many statues describes men and women genital explicitly. Just like david sculpture from vatican, but this built from black stone, river black stone which found easily surround that area.

The founder of Candi Sukuh thought that the slope of Mount Lawu is a sacred place for worshiping the ancestors, nature spirits and the observance of the fertility cults.

Yeah,.. you propably think there are any real erotic turism or somekind. But regretfully not ^_^, even hotel are available there if you wanna stay for days enjoying some nice view of Lawu.

Well. This is a place, .. and not far from there-about 30km- Tawangmangu is waiting. Nice tourism town which has many interesting places to visit. Grojogan sewu is the most people know abaut Tawangmangu. I 'll write about that next week. Just keep surfing...
