Buddha Statues, Borobudur Temple, Java, Indonesia

Borobudur is an amazing Buddhist temple built in the 9th century. This site is well worth a visit. It is located outside Yogyakarta, Java, Indonesia. I have posted more photos and a video from my visit to the Borobudur Buddhist temple site, which is a world heritage site.

Borobudur includes 504 Buddha statues. I didn’t notice the bat in this photo, when I was visiting.

    Being attracted and amazed with the Borobudur, I myself would not have noticed also the two animals on the statue. I wonder how people in the past curved and shaped a big stone into this majestic statue. They were so talented and skillful.

    One of the most visited place is the Borobudur. I think this has been recognized by UNESCO for its historical and cultural background. BTW, I noticed the bath! Hope to see more photos of yours….
