Dieng Plateau is the Most amazing place in the world

Dieng Plateau is the most amazing place in the world. See there.
Dieng Plateu is a marshy plateau that forms the floor of a caldera complex on the Dieng Volcanic Complex  near Wonosono, Central Java Indonesia. Referred to as "Dieng" by Indonesians, it sits at 2,000 metres (6,600 ft) above sea level, far from major population centres. The name "Dieng" comes from “Di Hyang” which means "Abode of the Gods".
Part of General Sudirman’s  guerilla campaign during the Indonesian War of Independence took place in the area.

The Plateau is the location eight small Hindu temples. Built around 750 CE, they are the oldest known standing stone structures in Java. They are originally thought to have numbered 400 but only eight remain.
Dieng's misty location almost 2000 m above sea level, its poisonous effusions and sulphur-coloured lakes make it a particularly auspicious place for religious tribute. The temples are small shrines built as monuments to the god-ancestors and dedicated to Shiva. The Hindu shrines are miniature cosmic mountains based on plans in Indian religious texts, although the design motifs have little connection to India. The earliest architectural usage of the Javanese demonic masks and marine monsters are exhibited along the niches and doorways of the remaining structures. The Dieng structures were small and relatively plain, but stone architecture developed substantially in only a matter of decades resulting in masterpieces such as the Prambanan complex and Borobudur .

In addition there are temples, Dieng plateau also shows the beauty of the lake the color of Dieng. You must visit this place, this lake provides a unique impression of the lake to another. Gives a very different feel to the natural beauty in this world.
