The Borobudur Temple, also known as The Barabudur Temple, is a Mahayana Buddhist temple located in Magelang Central Java, Indonesia. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site who launched a huge restoration process on the temple that took roughly seven years to complete.
There are no records to indicate the initial time or purpose of Borobudur, but it was likely constructed during the reign of the Sailendra Dynasty. The temple is a shrine to the Lord Buddha, and includes a central dome surrounded by 72 Buddha statues.
Today, the Borobudur Temple is used as a place of worship and meditation for Buddhists in Indonesia. It is a place of Buddhist pilgrimage and the location of Vesak ceremonies during the full moon of May or June.
