The temple of Prambanan in central Java is the largest Hindu temple ever built in Indonesia and one of the largest in Southeast Asia. Dedicated to the triumvirate of Shiva, Brahma, and Vishnu, the temple was built around 850 A.D. by the Mataram dynasty but abandoned soon after its construction. The Mataram dynasty practiced aspects of both Hinduism and Buddhism, and the temple complex includes some of the earliest Buddhist temples in Indonesia.
The 1840s was an important period in the history of lithographic illustrations in Indonesia. In 1843 was the installation of a lithographic establishment at the Topographical Bureau of Engineers at Batavia.

C. W. Mieling lithography establishment granted Royal predicate in 1847 – his Konincklijke Steendrukkerij was responsible for producing during the 1840s, 1850s and 1860s not only more topographical and ethnographical plates of Indonesia than any other establishment in the Netherlands, but also the most spectacular series of chromolithograph plates of Indonesian subjects ever published.
