Live onboard in Komodo Island National Park: Sunset

National Park Komodo Island. 

In July 2014 we spent vacation in Labuan Bajo Flores. We chose to try living onboard in Komodo Island water. We stay overnight in the boat. The boat crew took care our meal.

The National Park is a  part of Labuan Bajo bay in Flores, Indonesia.

The picture above was another boat like ours in Komodo island water that also anchored for overnight. I took this incredible scene of sunset.

Live onboard and sailing from island to island in Komodo National Park is worth to enjoy with your family or your lovely gang.

My Photography : The Palace of Queen Boko Yogyakarta 

Keraton Ratu Boko in Yogyakarta. Keraton means palace.

Ratu Boko or Boko temple (Javanese: Candhi Ratu Baka) is an archaeological site which is a complex number of the rest of the building which is located approximately 3 km south of the Prambanan complex, 18 km east of Yogyakarta or 50 km southwest of the City Surakarta, Central Java, Indonesia. Ratu Boko is situated on a hill at an altitude of 196 meters above sea level. The area of the  whole complex is about 25 ha. [1]

This site displays the attributes as a place of activities  or settlement sites, but their exact function is not clear. [2] Ratu Boko estimated to be the one in the 8th century during the Sailendra (Panangkaran) of the Kingdom Medang (Mataram Hindu). Considering from the pattern of the layout of  the remains of the building, allegedly this site is the former palace (royal palace). This opinion is based on the fact that the complex is not a temple or building with a religious nature, but rather a fortified castle with evidence of the rest of the fort wall and dry moat as a defense structure. [3] Remnants settlements were also found in the vicinity of this site.
The name “Queen Baka” is derived from local legend. Ratu Baka (Javanese, literal meaning: “the king of  stork”) is the father of Loro Jonggrang, which also became the name of the main temple at Prambanan temple complex. This building complex is associated with the legend Loro Jonggrang of the  local people. [1]
Administratively, the site is located in the region of two of village , namely village  Dawung, Bokoharjo Village and Hamlet Sumberwatu, Sambireja village, Prambanan subdistrict, Sleman, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
The site is to be nominated to the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995.
