Sewu (Indonesian: Candi Sèwu) is a Buddhist temple built in 8th century. It is 800 metres north of Candi Prambanan. Candi Sewu is the second largest Buddhist temple complex after Borobudur temple. Candi Sewu complex consists of 249 temples, although it is called 'Candi Sewu' which means 'a thousand temples' (in Javanese language). This candi is very much related to famous local folklore of Loro Jonggrang.
