Borobudur, or Barabudur is a 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist temple in Magelang Regency, not far from the town of Muntilan, in Central Java, Indonesia.
It is the world's largest Buddhist temple.
The temple consists of nine stacked platforms, six square and three circular, topped by a central dome.
It is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues.
The central dome is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues, each seated inside a perforated stupa.
Built in the 9th century during the reign of the Sailendra Dynasty, the temple design follows Javanese Buddhist architecture, which blends the Indonesian indigenous cult of ancestor worship and the Buddhist concept of attaining Nirvana.
Authors note: Most Buddha images here seem to be inside a bell-shaped and lotus-based structure. It seems to mean that they were protected by their deep silence from the troubles of the mind and world... It's the shelter of the inner Self or Nirvana. That is also the meaning of so many Buddhas inside deep rooms. -- raul
