Borobudur, approx. 25 mi northwest of Yogyakarta in the Kedu valley in central Java, is one of the largest Buddhist temples in Southeast Asia.
The 1,200-year-old building was hidden in the jungle for a long time. It was discovered in 1814 and restored in a 10-year construction period 1973 to 1983.
72 stupas and 504 Buddha statues adorn the gigantic building which has been declared UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991.
