10 thoughts on “The Stupas at Borobudur Temple

    • My memory is faulty, I thought this image was the top — but no, that would be the (mostly headless) images of the Buddha, am I right? All those decades ago, hardly any visitors, so we had the enchantment of being quiet and solitary, unrushed, as we made the journey upward. I expect and hope that the tourist influx has meant more money for upkeep.

    • At the top, centrally, there is a big stupa which is plain and not photogenic.
      There are some changes now as compared with thirty years ago: stainless steel handrails installed on the side of steps, floodlights installed to illuminate the place at night time – affecting the appearance of the place.
