Temple of Borobudur in Indonesia





Borobudur, approx. 25 mi northwest of Yogyakarta in the Kedu valley in central Java, is one of the largest Buddhist temples in Southeast Asia.


The 1,200-year-old building was hidden in the jungle for a long time. It was discovered in 1814 and restored in a 10-year construction period 1973 to 1983.

72 stupas and 504 Buddha statues adorn the gigantic building which has been declared by a World Heritage Site in 1991.
