Overview

Borobudur Temple Compounds This famous Buddhist temple, dating from the 8th and 9th centuries, is located in central Java. It was built in three tiers: a pyramidal base with five concentric square terraces, the trunk of a cone with three circular platforms and, at the top, a monumental stupa. The walls and balustrades are decorated with fine low reliefs, covering a total surface area of 2,500 m2. Around the circular platforms are 72 openwork stupas, each containing a statue of the Buddha. The monument was restored with UNESCO's help in the 1970s.

We visited this at sunrise and it is without doubt the best time to view !! Apart from being so beautiful then , later the crowds and hawkers arrive and the black stone makes it very hot !!

To my mind, the Borobudur temple surpasses all other heritage architecture in SE Asia, with the exception of the Angkor Wat. Of course, having been hit by earthquakes, it has been reconstructed over time using old material and the old pattern. But that takes nothing...More
