Borobudur, a Mahayana Buddhist Temple in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia, dating from the 8th and 9th centuries.
Described by UNESCO as “one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world”, Borobudur was built during the reign of the Syailendra Dynasty, which ruled Java for around five centuries until the 10th century. Borobudur is thought to have been derived from Sanskrit words vihara Buddha uhr, which means Buddhist monastery on the hill. The Buddhist temple was built to honour the glory of both the Buddha and its founder, a true king Bodhisattva.
