Additional Information

Introduction

Borobudur Temple is a famous Buddhist temple located in central Java dating from the 8th and 9th centuries. The Borobudur means "the stupa on the hill." The temple can be divided into 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 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. There is a museum on the north side of the Great Stupa that elaborates more on the background of the temple.
