Candi Bubrah

Candi Bubrah is a small temple which is found within the Prambanan Cultural Park near Yogyakarta, in Central Java. The name means the Broken Temple in Javanese, as it was in poor condtion when found. It has recently undergone substansive restoration. The buildings date from the 9th century at the same time as Candi Lumbung and Candi Sewu. The floor of the main temple is around 12 metres on each side. It is notable for the stūpas that decorate the roof. Most of the Buddha statues are damaged, with missing heads.

Candi Lumbang

Candi Lumbang stands nearby to Candi Bubrah and south of Candi Sewu in the Park, and dates to around the same time as those temples, in the 9th century CE. The name means the Rice Barn Temple in Javanese, because of its shape. The temple compound is composed of a main temple surrounded by 16 perwara (smaller) temples in concentric formal layout. The architectural style is similar to those of the Sewu temple complex nearby. Just like the Sewu and Prambanan temples, this temple faces east with its main entrance located on the east side of the temple compound. However the temple can be reached from all cardinal points. The structure is crowned with stūpas (partly adapted from Wikipedia).
