This is the dance performance of Indonesia traditional dancer with background of Prambanan Temple, the epic story of marvelous visualization of legendary epos in Javanese culture, "Ramayana", when Rahwana (the devil) is kidnapping Shinta (story-tale Princess), and Hanoman (a giant white monkey) helps Rama (the Prince) to release Shinta. The dance is usually performed in Trimurti Open Air Theater inside the Prambanan Temple (Unesco World Heritage Site), which is able to unite various Javanese arts such as dance, drama and music on one stage.
