Indonesia: Nature and Culture (**non-water** images only)

Challenge #19 in the around the world in 80 ways series. Hosted by santamonica812.
Challenge has finished
Last week we looked at nature images that included a water element. This week, the challenge is to find spectacular images that DO NOT have any water element. If I see that waterfall, ocean, lake, etc, it will be DQ'd. (Note: rainfall IS fine). On a nation of islands, can you find an image without water that will still take our breaths away? That's the challenge. You can focus on nature, or, on culture. As usual, only images that are new to DP challenges. If you have any questions about your entry, please submit early in the process so that you have a chance to submit a different image if there's a problem with the first entry. Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules.

It was worth the 4am rise and climb up to the top of the 9th century Buddhist temple in central Java, Indonesia. The sun has just risen between Mt Merbabu and Mt Merapi. Mt Merapi erupted some 4 months after this was taken killing 353 people
