The Javanese Candi: Function and Meaning
BRILL, 1995 - 162 páginas
"The Javanese Candi" is the outcome of a thorough study during many years on the function and the meaning of the monuments of ancient Indonesia, commonly called "candi," A re-examination of the archaeological evidence, while scrutinizing textual data from inscriptions and literary works, systematically rejects the current opinion as if the "candi" was a royal tomb to enshrine the ashes of the cremated body of the dead king. Instead, the "candi" was meant as a temple building where people could pay homage to the king and invoke the blessings of the forefather.
