Abstract

This study aims to: (1) explore the historical and cultural values found in Plaosan Lor Temple, (2) explore geometric concepts in mathematics for junior high schools related to Plaosan Lor Temple.

This research was conducted at Candi Plaosan, and a public junior high school in Tepus, Gunungkidul, Yogyakarta from March to May 2022. This research was descriptive qualitative research with an ethnographic approach. The participants in this study were a cultural practitioner from Plaosan Temple and a junior high school mathematics teacher. This study employed observation, documentation, and interviews for data collection. Spradley ethnographic model was used to analyze the data.

The results of the study concluded that (1) Plaosan Temple was a temple built around the 8th century to the 10th century AD. Plaosan Temple is believed to be one of the temples built by two different religious beliefs. Therefore, this temple not only has a Buddhist pattern but also has Hindu nuances. Plaosan Temple is divided into two complects, namely Plaosan Lor (North) Temple and Plaosan Kidul (Nouth) Temple. Plaosan Temple is also known as the Twin Temple. In the north side, there are several buildings including the main temple, ancillary temples, perwara stupas, mandhapas, mandhapa perwara stupas, fences, kori agung gates, and dwarapala statues. (2) The mathematical values found in the Plaosan Lor temple complex are two-dimensional and triangular shapes, Pythagorean theorems and Pythagorean triples and the congruence between two-dimensional shapes, flat geometric shapes, and curved geometric shapes.
