A Buddha Sits In The
Photograph - Digital Image
A Buddha sits in the silence of dawn amid 1200-year-old stupas at Borobudur. Built in the 800's during the Sailendra Dynasty, it has been called "a Buddhist mystery in stone." Little is known of its builders or its earliest history. A tremendous earthquake and volcanic eruption in 1006 caused the evacuation of the area and the site was not rediscovered until 1814. Restorations have occurred intermittently since that time.
