Not all temples have typical, beautiful relief since generally they are decorated with statues and general relief as those found in almost all other temples. One of the temples with specific, beautiful relief is Gampingan, a temple that was incidentally found by a brick craftsman in Gampingan Village, Piyungan, Bantul in 1995. Small and incomplete, Gampingan temple is still rich in the enchanting relief.
Gampingan temple that was discovered in 1995 was predicted to be part of Gampingan archeological site. The foot of the temple is decorated with various kinds of animals one of them is a bird that was believed to be able to bring messages from nirvana.
