Borobudur and Yogyakarta are two names that have made us dream for years. We absolutely wanted to visit them which has been done since November 2019.

 

 

Borobudur and its stupas are in reality a single large stupa. Seen from above, the site is also in the form of a giant vajrayana mandala representing both Buddhist cosmology and the nature of the soul. Its base is a square approximately 118 meters in length. It has nine platforms, the first six square and the top three circular. The top platform has a large stupa in its center surrounded by seventy-two other small ones. The stupas are in the form of bells and pierced with numerous decorative openings. Sitting Buddha statues can be seen through the openings.
