Religious authorities to have a say in Indonesia's ancient temple management

No Comments

The Indonesian department of religious affairs will have a say over the management of its ancient temples such as the Hindu Prambanan and Buddhist Borobudur, which is currently managed by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture. The change is the result of a call by local Hindu and Buddhist leaders to recognise these temples, tourist sites in a predominantly Muslim country, as sacred spaces still used for pilgrimage by their local communities.
