It is said that based on legend, Rara Jonggrang begged a thousand temples in one night like the prerequisites of Bandung Bandawasa applications. Through the encouragement of genies, Bandung Bandawasa was able to cope with a thousand temples which at the end were thwarted by Rara Jonggrang.

Etymology

The name Prambanan, derived from the name of the village where the temple area stands, is predicted to be a Javanese dialect change from the Hindu theological designation of the Brahmins, meaning “Great Brahman” ie Brahman or the highest and most eternal, unverifiable reality, which is often equated with the concept of Maha in Hinduism. Another assumption is that the Brahmins may refer to the heyday of this temple which was once filled with Brahmins. Another assumption makes a comment that the name “Prambanan” comes from the base of the word mban in Javanese, which means to bear or carry a task, referring to the Hindu gods who carry out the task of fixing and working on harmony in the universe.

The complicated authentic name of this Hindu temple is the name of Sanskrit; Siwagrha (House of Shiva) or Siwalaya (Nature of Shiva), for Siwagrha Inscription dating to 778 Saka (856 AD). Trimurti is glorified in this elaborate temple with 3 main temples glorifying Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu. It is intended that Shiva Mahadewa who occupies the main room in the Shiva temple is a highly glorified deity in the intricate of this temple.
