Borobudur temple

Built in the 9th century and approximately 300 years before Cambodia’s Angkor Wat was constructed, Borobudur Temple is one of the greatest and oldest Buddhist monuments in the world. It is often considered as one of the seven wonders of the world. The monument consists of six square platforms topped by three circular platforms and is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues. A main dome, located at the center of the top platform, is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues seated inside perforated stupas. UNESCO added the monument to its list of World Heritage Sites in 1991.
