Dieng Plateau, or simply known as Dieng by the locals, refers to a marshy plateau located 2093 above sea level between Banjarnegara and Wonosobo district in Central Java. This plateau is particularly famous among the archaeological world as the place where the oldest Hindu Temples in Java were discovered. The name ‘Dieng’ comes from Di-Hyang (above of the Gods), and it is thought that this was once the site of a temple-city of priests. Today, this site is a must visit for the archaeological enthusiasts and those that want to explore Central java beyond the regular Yogyakarta and Solo. To appreciate Dieng, it’s best to stay in Dieng village, although Wonosobo has better facilities and more popular as the main gateway. Alternately, many Yogyakarta travel companies also offer tours to Dieng.
