Merapi volcano, one of Indonesia's most active volcanoes, looms above the renowned Hindu temple complex of Prambanan, Indonesia's largest, dating back to 900 CE. Many of the temple complexes on the culturally rich Prambanan plain below Merapi have been affected by lahars (mudflows) that traveled tens of km from the volcano.
