Why The Name Chandicraft?
The word candi in Indonesian is
pronounced chandi and means House of the Divine. The kings and
queens were considered divine monarchs; living incarnations of Hindu
Gods and Goddesses. These monarchs were not only responsible for the
spiritual and physical well-being of the people but for cultural
and artistic advancement.
