Borobudur

A Bhuddist temple built in the 9th century that is a place for pilgrimage.

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.

  • Un des grands temples de l'asie du sud est à ne pas manquer. Les bas reliefs narrant la vie de bouddha sont splendides, de même que la vue à couper le souffle au lever et au coucher de soleil depuis le sommet. A conseiller!!!
