Background: Since 2008 Patrimonito has become our remarkable project focusing on heritage site preservation.
We recently conduct Patrimonito project in Plaosan temple which also belongs to Prambanan temple compounds.
Prambanan temple compounds is a UNESCO world heritage site in Indonesia which is one of the largest temple
compounds in Southeast Asia. It was built in 9th century dedicated to the three great Hindu divinities (Shiva,
Wishnu and Brahma). The Prambanan temple compounds consist of Prambanan temple (also called Loro
Jonggrang), Sewu temple, Bubrah temple and Lumbung temple with total about 240 temples. The temples were
damaged by earthquake in 2006 and volcano ashes from Kelud mountain eruption in 2014. Until then the site
management try its best to preserve the temple by restoring the damaged temple and conducting a lot of activities
in collaborating with UNESCO, government and stakeholders to support the preservation.
The volunteers will be introduced to the World Heritage Centre’s activities and campaign, the history and dynamics
of world heritage sites worldwide. It aims at rendering its symbolic dimension to heritage through debates and
reflections, contribute to the restoration and preservation of cultural heritage and/or improve accessibility and
availability of information, raise the awareness of the local population and create a sense of “ownership " and
identification, and promote cultural heritage between international volunteers and organizations.
Work: Volunteers will have restoration work. Besides, before the restoration work, the volunteers will have one
day orientation about how to do the restoration and given information about the history of the temple, so that the
volunteers really gain a lot of knowledge about the temples and the process of restoration. As the volunteers live
in the local community of Bugisan village, they also have activities in the local school with the local students. They
will promote to the students how to preserve the temple and do some activities like students competition, culture
exchange etc. The volunteers will also campaign about world heritage preservation to the local community as well
as the visitors related to the world heritage especially Prambanan temple compounds.
Study theme: The volunteers will be introduced to Prambanan temple compounds and learn about the value of
history and culture. They will learn why and how this temple was built long time ago by visitng temples and
heritages sites around. In this opportunity the volunteers will also be introduced to the Indonesian culture and
customs in general, with a special focus on the Javanese particularities. Some cultural visits are also foreseen.
