Photos of Borobudur Temple, Indonesia
May 17, 2012 • Photography & Travel
Continuing the post on Borobudur that I started a few days ago. Here are few more images and a little more insight into this spectacular Buddhist temple in Central Java, Indonesia.
Six square terraces make up the bottom part of the temple and on top of these are three circular terraces. There are four stairways leading up to the top arched by intricately carved gateways. The upper terraces have 72 stone lattice stupas, each with a statue of Buddha meditating within. Throughout the complex peaceful-faced Buddha statues stare out into the gorgeous Javanese landscape.
Our meditation and wellness retreat to Indonesia takes us to Central Java among the five islands that we will visit. We’ll also have the opportunity to witness the sunrise at Borobudur….truly magical in every sense of the word.
