The Prambanan Temple in central Java is one of the largest Hindu temples in the world dedicated to the Trimurthis - Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma.
Built-in the 9th century, the temple was left abandoned without any rituals and was later turned into a tourist spot following several earthquakes that destroyed parts of the structure.
This temple is now recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the idols of the Trimuthis, together with their dedicated vahana (mythical entity), are still preserved in the temple.
According to the inscription found in Prambanan, the temple was inaugurated on November 12, 856 AD.
Now, 1,163 years after its inauguration, the same rituals were conducted for three days starting from 12th November. The rituals were followed as mentioned in 25 Shilaalekh inscriptions of Hinduism, written during the Mataram Kingdom era.
The three-day prayers ended with a traditional dance performance of Siwagraha which tells the story of the Prambanan temple reconstruction.
In Hinduism, abhisegham is a devotional activity believed to revive positive energy.
