The colossal cosmic mountain is one of humanity's most imposing creations -nothing else like it exists.
This is the largest Buddhist temple in the world and the oldest in South East Asia. Built with more than 2,000,000 cubic feet of stone, Borobodur is the biggest ancient monument in the Southern Hemisphere.The temple has a specific shape close to a stepped pyramid and not the traditional enclosed sanctuary, housing the representation of a deity. The silhouette was clearly meant to suggest a mountain.
