Pawon is the name of a temple not far from Borobudur temple.
Pawon restored in 1903 by J.G. de Casparis. Pawon name can not be known for
certain of its origin. J.G. de Casparis interpret that pawon comes from the
Javanese Awu which means ashes, gets the prefix ‘pa’and suffix ‘an’ that show a
place or somewhere. In the daily Javanese language said, pawon means the
kitchen, but De Casparis interpret funeral. Local residents also called Pawon
temple with Bajranalan. The word is probably derived from the Sanskrit word
vajra which means "lightning" and anala which means "fire".
Inside the temple chamber had not found the statues, making
it difficult to identify it further. One thing that is interesting about this
temple is the dressing variety. Outside the temple walls are decorated with
reliefs of biological tree (Kalpataru) that flanked the coffers and
Kinara-Kinari (creatures half-human half-bird / bird-headed human bodied).
Pawon the location is in between the temple and the temple of Borobudur Mendut,
just 1.750 meters away from the temple of Borobudur and 1.150 m Mendut.
There is not complete enough, if go to Borobudur, but not
