The Amazing Borobudur

July 1, 2013

Hello Reader friends,

First of all a big thanks to all those who liked my previous post  70′s Classic Prototype Cars!
Today I will share with you some breath-taking photos of one of the largest, ancient naturally made structures of the world…It’s known by the name “Borobudur”. Here are some facts about this splendid ancient monument
 

About: Borobudur, or Barabudur, a 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist Temple in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia.
Construction started: 750 AD
Area: 2,500 m²
Opened: 825 AD
Address: Indonesia
Architectural style: Architecture of India
Architect: Gunadharma

Some 1,200 years ago builders carted two million stones from local rivers and streams and fit them tightly together without the aid of mortar to create a 95-foot-high (29-meter-high) step pyramid. More than 500 Buddha statues are perched around the temple. Its lower terraces include a balustrade that blocks out views of the outside world and replaces them with nearly 3,000 bas-relief sculptures illustrating the life and teachings of the Buddha. Together they make up the greatest assemblage of such Buddhist sculpture in the world. Here are the photos… Enjoy!
