In 1745, the Sultan of Mataram dynasty moved his court to Solo or Surakarta. The first sultan equates art with civilization, bringing with him his silversmiths, musicians, artists, dancers and painters. Today, their descendants carry on the creative legacy of Solo, which is why the Javanese classical dance and art schools still flourish. Solo is a two-hour Amanjiwo. In the village of Berjo, some 50 km east of Solo and almost 1000 meters on volcanic slopes, is Sukuh Candi, one of the most unusual temples and striking of Indonesia. Its main feature is a large truncated pyramid. Remarkable reliefs, sculptures and objects of worship are located inside. Candi Cetho is another temple, not far from Candi Sukuh. It overlooks the town steep Hindus of the same name. From the same period Sukuh, it shares many similarities with the temples of Bali.
