Gedong Songo (Indonesian: Candi Gedong Songo) is a Hindu temple located in Central Java, Indonesia. The site was originally built during early period of Medang Kingdom which controlled Central Java during the 8th and 9th centuries. Similar to Dieng Plateau, Gedong Songo was erected out of volcanic stone and the two complexes represent the oldest Hindu structures in Java. Dieng and Gedong Songo predate Borobudur and Prambanan. The temples of Gedong Songo reflect a similar architectural structure to the Dieng Plateau. However, Gedong Songo displays more emphasis on plinth and cornice moulding. At Temple 3, an entrance is outlined by a vestibule that is decorated by guardian figures.
