Borobudur in Central Java is unique. In the shape of a pyramid, with four square terraces leading to three circular ones, this extraordinary building is covered with 3 miles of carvings.
Situated on a lush palm-covered volcanic plain, this is a building that deserves the title of 'eighth wonder of the world'. Remarkably, this massive construction lay deserted and obscured by jungle for over 1000 years, only to be to be re-discovered by none other than famous Englishman Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles.
Following a recent complete renovation of its 1.6 million blocks of volcanic stone, many questions can only now be answered surrounding this enigmatic temple.
