    Candi Sukuh is a 15th century Hindu temple that is located on the western slope
    of Mount Lawu in Central Java, Indonesia.

    The site has a step pyramid as its main monument, surrounded by life-sized figures.

    The temple of Candi Sukuh differs completely from other Javanese Hindu and Buddhist temples
    and is curiously Maya-like.

    Candi Sukuh contains a pervasive theme of spiritual liberation symbolized by reliefs and statues.

    The temple isn’t as wildly erotic as is sometimes suggested
    but the elements of a fertility cult are quit clear.
