Bayu Anggoro, Mrs. Sariyatun, Mrs. Susanto


Culture is a very long root of a human civilization, no human being does not create culture, on the other hand, humans always create thinkers to take action and make a term and this is called culture. Special culture in the archipelago and more specifically Java and contemporary times. "Hindu-Buddhist" is about a place of worship called Candi. Temple as the highest form of society when it became a representation of civilization (copyright, taste, and intention) all of which are the result of human thought in the past that can be realized in the form of temples. One of the Planggatan Temples which has a different pattern from the other temples is in Java. Planggatan Temple is also a picture of harmony solidarity contained in one corner of the relief. A temple is a place of worship from the relics of the past that originated from Hindu-Buddhist religion which has meaning Candika Graha, Candika= Goddess of Death, Graha= Griyo (House) which applies to the whole house to live in the spirit that has left the world. The Planggatan Temple itself is a temple that is used entirely with these works. Planggatan is the place where the spirits of the people are buried in the Planggatan temple itself. This on the other side of the temple Planggatan tells only as a place for spirits to reside but tells about the norms of everyday life that we are able to see in their unique uses on temple rocks which are increasingly faint in appearance statue (help).
