The Dieng volcanic complex, seen here from the SE, has numerous small craters and cones of Pleistocene-to-Holocene age over an area of 6 x 14 km. Minor phreatic eruptions have occurred in historical time, sometimes associated with hazardous gas emissions. The volcanic terrain of the Dieng plateau contains the oldest temples in Java.
