Borobudur Temple Compounds - Indonesia

This famous Buddhist temple, dating from the 8th and 9th centuries, is located in central Java. 
It was built in three tiers: a pyramidal base with five concentric square terraces, the trunk of a cone with three circular platforms and, at the top, a monumental stupa. 
The walls and balustrades are decorated with fine low reliefs, covering a total surface area of 2,500 m2. 
Around the circular platforms are 72 openwork stupas, each containing a statue of the Buddha. 
The monument was restored with UNESCO's help in the 1970s.
